Cristina Castrillo

Over four decades of dedication to professional theatre : from the foundation, in the seventies, of Libre Teatro Libre, one of the most famous Latin American companies in Argentina to the birth of the "Teatro delle Radici" in Switzerland in 1980.
The versality of her work (as an actress, a teacher and a director) has led her to put into practice the fundamental aspects of her approach, both as regards her perfornance and that of other actors.
Dedicating all her efforts to the research of elements that are basis of an actor's training, she has contributed to the creation of collective and individual shows in which the actor is always at the very heart of the inventive process. The creation of her solo entitled "On the Heart of the Earth" is particularly noteworthy. The performance has been presented on many occasions and several festivals in Europe and Latin America.
To expand her pedagogical activities, she has created, in cooperation with colleagues of the "Teatro delle Radici", a "Theatre Lab School" for foreing actors. Her method has been presented at countless workshops and demonstrations of work that she has been invited to lead in different countries in Europe, central and latin America, United States, Australia and New Zealand.
