It may seem bizarre to entitle a theater laboratory this way. Maybe. But this is the closest metaphor to the meaning of what, for this edition, the laboratory intends to research on. Literally the navel means: the place where we are coming from, the sign of our origin. Accustomed as we are to diversity and contact –even unconsciously- from so many different sources, with different views, tastes, colors, languages, food of the most different provenance, we wonder how far this flow has determined, generated and inflicted our identity. From it comes the necessity of discovering and reviewing how much and in which way all of these necessary passages correspond in essence to what we define as our own cultural background.
Besides the daily work on physical training and expansion of the introspective world that are at the bases of the creative technique of Teatro delle Radici, the focus of this laboratory will be on the construction of exercises and proposals centered on the distinctive elements of our own cultural origin and the important paths that have contributed to enrich, modify and transform it.
The participants will be present throughout the whole established period. As usual, the workshop foresees, besides the pedagogical approach directed by Cristina Castrillo, the presence of special guests as well as working presentations, performances and interventions on the topic.
