Teatro Magro began its artistic activity as a theatre group in Mantua, northern Italy, in 1988, under the artistic direction of Flavio Cortellazzi. Today, in a consolidated and structured way, it moves in the feld of “research and experimental theatre”, to overcome traditional spaces and boundaries. Teatro Magro dedicates its commitment in various areas, submitting a cultural, popular, social and educational offer, different and multidisciplinary.
Teatro Magro draws from everyday life by denouncing the stereotype, commonplace, rhetoric. All is permeated by irony that forces you to maintain a high level of attention and a critical observation, for achieving an independent, personal and disenchanted perspective.
These are the typical features of the Teatro Magro’s poetic point of view. Each work is the result of a teamwork in which all members combine their skills and experience, for a final product characterized by high quality and attention to details, in a constant process of innovation, attention to the contemporary, combined with the simultaneous ability to conserve and restore their style. A style of aesthetics, unique, well defined and easily recognizable, and above all, a substance essential, clean, straight to the content: “Magro” (slim).
