ASSOCIAZIONE CULTURALE TEATROVIVO
The aim of the association 'Teatro Vivo' is to foster the tradition of the 'Commedia dell'Arte', which has a centuries' long history. The headquarters of the association are at the theatre space Teatro Binario, in the former warehouse of the railway station.
Teatrovivo theatre company officially started in Autumn 1998 with the aim to set up shows of street theatre, buskers, circus-theatre and 'Commedia dell'Arte'.
Beside, the cooperation with Cotignola's municipality has given birth to the street theatre festival named 'L'improvvisa Festival Internazionale di Commedia dell'Arte', which is held every year in June in the heart of the town centre.
The company activity has always followed two main aspects: from one side, the organization of theatre workshops (both for professionals and non-professionals), and, on the other side, the creation of theatre shows which bring on the stage, within the coherent structure of the play, all the different skills of the company's actors (like singing, dancing, playing music, stunt and circus performances and so on). The company's actors have directed workshops in Italy and abroad (Royal Shakespeare Company, Young Vic Company, London) and have organized workshops for actors, dancers, singers and buskers with Katsura Kan, Stefano Perocco and Carlo Boso.
