It's Insomnia again

The show created by Master students returns to the stage on Saturday, 12th of May at Teatro Dimitri in Verscio (CH) and on 18-19-20th of May at Teatro Foce in Lugano (CH).

The show “Insomnia” is a theatre piece directed by Pavel Štourač which includes different styles such as clown, object theatre, physical theatre and live music which was created and played by the actors. “Insomnia” was created in 2016 as a collective group work during Master program at Accademia Teatro Dimitri in Verscio: the final production (characters, situations and music) is the result of an intense collective work. The whole show unfolds itself around the texts and quotes of the prominent authors, theatre directors and choreographers of the past century, such as Antonin Artaud, Jerzy Grotowski, Rudolf Laban, Edward Gordon Craig and many others.

After successful shows in Switzerland, Hungary, Italy and Czech Republic, the group of artists felt the desire to take the project further and bring to Ticino again. 

Seven young artists live in a loft in an industrial district of a big city and they are looking for work. They share the space, the food and the ideas about life and art. They are dreaming of a better world where they can revolutionize their own way of doing theatre with an unforgettable show that would make them famous or at least, would earn them enough money to make enough money to pay the rent. They doubt the meaning of art and they question themselves, in the equilibrium between philosophical ideals and the rough reality. Thus, another sleepless night is about to begin...
