The Theatres of the Sacred - fourth edition

You are here

The Theatres of the Sacred is not just a festival, neither a mere showcase of new productions. It is first of all an artistic and cultural adventure dedicated to the intersections, getting more and more popular, among theatre, religious quest and spiritual tension: a free and honest 'melee' with faith, turned on by action drama.

A new look, which in recent years has been extremely stimulating for the appeal and quality of the works presented, which has also been confirmed in the fourth edition, taking place in Lucca between 8 and 14 June. There have been 20 new shows, chosen by a lengthy selection attended by over 250 artists and companies from all over Italy.

The Festival stages performances of the most important Italian professional theatre workers, but also of the amateur companies winners of the special prize "Mario Apollonio". This might be apparently a 'scandal', but it is actually an added value, as desire to do theatre has its roots and bear fruit in a common and inseparable ground: the game of camouflage, by which men try since childhood to know themselves and to meet others. This is then a theatre of everyone and for everyone, with the aim of being, before and beyond the aesthetics of the performance, an opportunity for popular participation, an event at the service of the community and its 'common good', in the name of beauty conceived as a benefit for all.
