International Theatre Workshop, Biennale de Venezia, Venice, 27 Oct - 27
Nov (deadline: 29 Sep)

For the first time the Venice Biennale’s Theatre section, directed by
Maurizio Scaparro, plans its activity over a period of two years and
around a single theme, the Mediterranean. Two different activities which
are closely correlated, in new ways.

The International Theatre Workshop, which will take place in Venice from
October 27th to November 27th 2008, develops around the idea of theatre as
a “construction site for art”, in which the works of tomorrow may take
root and sediment, while offering the young and future artists an
opportunity for an educational experience, the communication of knowledge
and a direct rapport within a research project.

Many of the workshops scheduled for November, will later flow into the
40th International Theatre Festival –which will be held shortly before
Carnival, from February 20th to March 8th 2009– this time in the form of
performances, that will follow the presentation of some of the development
phases during the International Theatre Workshop.

The Workshop and the Festival are inspired by the theme of the
Mediterranean, seen as “a complex place of encounters and currents, which
implies the movement of peoples, histories and cultures, which underlines
the continuous sense of historic transformation and cultural tradition
that makes it a place of continuous transition” (I. Chambers). The first
part of the project takes place along a journey that begins with our
literary and cultural roots to end with the burning realities of the
history of our times -from Palestine to Lebanon, from Israel to the

The International Theatre Workshop will be distributed across the five
great themes that express the many facets of the Mediterranean:
Shakespeare’s Sea, Myths Rediscovered, Once upon a Time, The Lingua Franca
of the Mediterranean Ports, and Sans papiers.
