/ Faenza – Italy

Teatro Due Mondi - Mauerspringer


Since 40 years, Teatro Due Mondi runs a stable theatre research focusing in particular on street theatre being its mission to bring theatre where it is especially needed: suburbs, orphanages, socially disadvantaged areas, streets and squares. The group’s work comprehends both theatre teaching and theatre production (street theatre performances and workshops, social committed theatre, theatre for children), organization of events (theatre, music and dance), information and net-working (conferences and meetings about artistic and social issues).  It is operating internationally, touring all over the world with performances and pedagogical activities.

He has to his credit: 50 productions, 25 special projects, several dozen workshops, over 3,000 performances in international festivals, theaters and squares of 33 countries on 4 continents.

It aims to create a theatre form, particularly street theatre, that speaks a universal language accessible to all, and that acts as a communication tool of social issues.  Recently, its work is even more engaged in the social sphere, using theatre pedagogy for the social inclusion of underrepresented groups (migrants, unemployed people). 

The company’s activity is based on artistic and creative values. He created his own poetics that focus on the actor and the viewer in which the traditional song is located, the artistic and cultural heritage of the Commedia dell’Arte, which reinterprets in his performances.
It has always been a theater of relationship, political and visionary whose ethical motivations start from the need to build a human society founded on respect for the other.

He is mentioned in the EU “STREET ARTISTS IN EUROPE” 2009 REPORT and for this discipline he has been invited several times abroad. In 2010 he was awarded by the Piedmont Region for the quality of his artistic work for having known how to “bring the research theater on the street, thus giving it a strong popular dimension. The road as a place “other” from those deputed, which also means forgotten territory, marginal, to be recovered or to be met “.

Wall Cracks

Come crepe nei muri

The new street performance WALL CRACKS by Teatro Due Mondi is produced in the frame of the European Project MAUERSPRINGER – Wall Jumpers.
It is the result of a long creative process that has started seven years ago when the ensemble from Faenza gave birth to Borderless, a theatre workshop with Italian non professional actors and refugees that have been arriving in Italy since then. Ignorance rises walls while knowledge makes them tumble down. WALL CRACKS is a show about high walls of division that still are built day by day.
There are so many of them that they look like a gigantic labyrinth when you watch them from the sky. The actors will be stopped by these walls, they will try to get to the other side but they are refused. They will try it again and again and search for new ways. But if you don’t have a valid passport or if you are different you won’t get through.
