WEGIL + La Pelanda – Mattatoio di Roma
from the 5th to the 12th September
This year Short Theatre launches Anticipation of the Night, a space for discussion each afternoon that fosters relationships woven around the immediate experiences between listening bodies. It is conceived as an experimental dynamic field between theories, artistic narratives, soundscapes and practises, all allied to the idea of art as a public space.
Anticipation of the Night distils moments of conviviality before the lights go out and the shows begin, promoting the connections between worlds and language, feeding tangential thinking and aesthetic intrusions that are capable of building an environment. It is about moments of collective education and an exchange of knowledge rooted in experience. For Short Theatre 2021, this mesh of probing voices and sound will punctuate the speeches at dusk to instil the poetics of listening.
