Short Theatre is a festival of performing arts that, since 2006, in Rome, has offered an ever-changing landscape of live acts. A temporary community that rebuilds itself annually around the international and national arts scene – plays, performances, installations, meetings, concerts and DJ sets. A lens with which to investigate changing languages, imagine new affinities, moving beyond disciplinary, geographical and cultural confines.
Short Theatre has been created by the Cultural Association AREA06, under the artistic direction of Fabrizio Arcuri and the general direction and co-curation of Francesca Corona.
AREA06 is a platform working both in Italy and Europe that produces, organizes and promotes various cultural projects: educational programmes, festivals, artistic careers.
AREA06 is both a resource for projects development and an idea of cultural policy. Several subjects from different generations and professions take part in AREA06: managers, artists, administrators, young trainees, moodboarders searching for new ways of producing and communicating, for a different approach to theatre and other areas.
AREA06 is a member of the Associazione Scenario. AREA06 has been producing Short Theatre since 2006.
