Teatro Urbano

For those of you interested in Urban Theatre... I found this annual event in Rome - unfortunately the next one isn't until Sept 2009, but never-the-less...

The Annual Festival Internazionale del Teatro Urbano aims to transform urban spaces into theatre spaces and the pedestrians into the extraordinary. The festival "present[s] theatre pieces specifically created in city places (urban sceneries), where people (spectators) come together for absolutely different reasons (eg. in the underground)." The agenda of the festival is to reclaim the theatre and combat indifference (presumably between people from different backgrounds) via the use of 'guerilla tactics'...and it's free! (well to the spectators at least!). The events take place all over the city at set locations -some more conventional or in need of 'carnivalisation' than others.
