Activities

ZeroFavole  offers youth with and without disabilities theatrical workshops of a high artistic level, with the collaboration of renown artists.

In 2015, some actors from this theatrical company will be performing Inferno, a work created and performed for the first time during the ZeroFavole workshop in 2014, with direction from Enrico Castellani and Valeria Raimondi of the Babilonia Theatres (see link). The performances are scheduled during Italian theatrical contests and festivals, not all dedicated exclusively to the theatre of diversity.

Babilonia Theatres writes:

Inferno is the want, the desire and the dream to continue doing theatre in live places. To make theatre an event capable of transforming things and people.

Inferno is the conviction that theatre today must focus more on people than itself.

Inferno is doing theatre with those who do not comply with the logic of theatre but, unconsciously and subversively, turn it upside down and, in so doing, renew it.

Inferno reclaims theatre’s role of dialectic injection, capable of lacerating the present, of putting us in crisis.

Inferno is an oasis, a mirage, the goal on the horizon. Inferno is a non-place.

Inferno goes beyond stigma.

Inferno is an acid bath to strip away labels that falsify reality.

Inferno is incandescent lava for our aesthetic. It is nutrition for our ethics.”
