“The theater play is the game of life, the game of the body, the game of relationships. The social game” (Claudio Bernardi)


Zero Negativo theater The essence of the theater is formed by a meeting. The individual who performs an act of self- penetration, establishes a contact in some way with himself: that is, an extreme comparison, honest, disciplined, accurate and complete. Not only a comparison with his thoughts, but a comparison that would engage his whole being, his instincts and unconscious reasons up to the stage of his more lucid awareness. (Per un teatro povero, Jerzy Grotowski)

In this view, the theater (of) Social arises as a resource and privileged place of expression, becoming one of social aggregation tool that helps the recovery of excluded or disadvantaged people, being a messenger of a language based mainly on the body and emotions.

The most precious resource of the social theater is to be the bearer of a form of relationship of an anthropological order before artistic and performative: create freedom, empowerment, not dependency or spaces of intermittent evasion and evanescent.

The social theater does not make the infinite multiplicity of cultures in a uniform magma "digested" by everyone, however a reverse globalization that values ​​differences, putting them in a condition to express themselves through practical and common knowledge: those of the body, poetry, music, rituals. When the language is common to the interlocutors the dialogue is possible. (Tra povertà e socialità: la ricchezza del teatro, V. Perico)
