Theater Season 19/20

Returning to the past to orientate in the present is the file rouge that Triennale Milano Teatro proposes for the 2019/2020 season, in which artistic multidisciplinarity opens up new views on the contemporary scene. The programming is constellate by timeless classics revisited and revitalized by a new vision and by contemporary performances that have become classic. Alongside the performances, Triennale Milano Teatro presents the programme EXTRA, a calendar of complementary activities: discussions, workshops and events with the direct involvement of the artists.

Deflorian/Tagliarini

Rewind

The personal memories of the extraordinary Café Müller by Pina Bausch compose a collective autobiography, a fragmented portrait of one of the most ground-breaking dance performances of the 20thcentury.

Ce ne andiamo per non darvi altre preoccupazioni

Defying theatrical conventions, Daria Deflorian and Antonio Tagliarini, joined on stage by Monica Piseddu and Valentino Villa, construct a performative journey which interrogates suicide not as existential gesture but as extreme political act.

Saburo Teshigawara, Rihoko Sato/KARAS

Tristan and Isolde

In Tristan and Isolde, Japanese choreographer Saburo Teshigawara meets Wagner’s music, both emblem of a distinctly European romanticism and vehicle of motives and themes that transcend spatio-temporal boundaries.

Il giardino dei ciliegi

In this new work by Alessandro Serra, reality is rendered through a blurred vision, in which the narration is unraveled and the script is in itself interrupted by small impediments, misunderstandings, songs, weeping, mumbling, rhymes and sounds.

OHT | Office for a Human Theatre

Curon / Graun

OHT tells its story through a hypnotic piece of musical theatre inspired by the music of the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt. Presenting the audience with a space without actors, Curon/Graun employs a slowed-down narration that combines texts and images with live performance.

Bermudas

Bermudas is an intriguing and hypnotic choreography, conceived for a varying number of performers (between three and thirteen), in interchangeable combinations. Inspired by chaos theory, the work plays with simple rules that generate a shared and permeable rhythmical world.

By Heart 

By Heart is a piece about the importance of transmission, about the invisible smuggling of words and ideas that only keeping a text in your memory can provide. It’s about a theatre that recognizes itself as a place that deals with what you can’t measure in meters, euros or bytes.

Sopro

Both emotional and witty, Sopro (blow) is a homage to theatre and to those who make it happen.
