How Our Performances Is Created

IMPORTANCE OF STREET THEATRE IN HISTORY AND
HOW OUR PERFORMANCES IS CREATED PICCOLO NUOVO TEATRO.

A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY OF STREET THEATRE

Street theater has an ancient origin. It occurred in the streets and squares of ancient Egypt and in Graeco-Roman culture. Most of the history of the theatre tells of shows held outdoors: in the markets, at fairs, in churches, in the courts of kings. This was happening a long time before indoor theatre was even thought of!
From the 15th century until the 20th century, theatre was increasingly developed in enclosed spaces (theatre-type buildings) and all theatrical techniques born in the street gradually developed the characteristics of what is now known as "stage theatre".
Street theatre was almost forgotten for a long time and only during the past century was it rediscovered and re-evaluated in full. A slow process of rediscovery that reached its apogee in Italy in the 1980s with ministerial decrees that sanctioned official recognition of street theatre.
  •  In the late 70s and early 80s there was great cultural growth. The ever developing and evolving indoor theatre then left the stage and returned to its origin, the streets to experiment with new forms of the craft.
    Today the square shows are gaining more space and recognition. The numerous events in the city, urban spaces such as well equipped and beautiful pedestrian squares allow for the increasing demand for street arts.
  •  Popular theatre is therefore able to go back to the people, back to its roots. This can be of great benefit to those who lack the opportunities or funds to participate in the more formal and expensive indoor performances.

HOW DOES A PERFORMANCE OF PICCOLO NUOVO TEATRO BEGIN?

  •  Piccolo Teatro Nuovo builds on a tradition and method already strongly constructed by the previous company, Atmo: the construction of the shows though 360 °. From subject to costumes, from the masks to the scenography, from the music to the drama.
  •  For the Piccolo Nuovo Teatro drama is critical, the staging of a play or a performance can never be separated from the telling of the story. The goal for the company is always to leave something for the viewer, to evoke emotions that make the show a beautiful memory.
