Instabili Vaganti at the 'Bharat Rang Mahotsav' - International Theatre Festival of India

The company is on stage in New Delhi and Srinagar with "The Global City" and will then be in Kohima for a new stage of the 'Beyond Borders' project. February 18 - March 6

The 25th edition of the Bharat Rang Mahotsav (International Theatre Festival of India), organized by the prestigious National School of Drama, opened in New Delhi on February 1st.
For three weeks and across fifteen cities, the festival proposes a broad programme that includes different theatrical genres, as well as many collateral activities such as meetings with the authors, debates, exhibitions, workshops, masterclasses, and other moments of insight and exchange for both the public and operators.

Instabili Vaganti theatre company is guest of the festival with the latest work The Global City, that will be on stage in New Delhi on February 18 (Kamani Auditorium, 7 pm) and in Srinagar on February 20 (Tagore Hall, 3:30 pm).

The Global City is a journey ‘beyond borders’ in the company of a contemporary Marco Polo, a metamorphic performance, in which the micro-stories collected by the company in some of the largest cities on the planet but also in remote villages in Asia and Latin America, are artistically recomposed on stage, drawing a dystopian and virtual city of memory. A work that, in the words of the director Anna Dora Dorno, “represents our critical vision of the trend of contemporary society”.

In Delhi, Anna Dora Dorno will also be guest of a meeting at the National School of Drama (February 18), while the Italian Cultural Institute will host In the Cities (February 23), a special conference conceived by Instabili Vaganti to introduce the spectator into the complex process that led to the creation of this experimental theatre performance, also through short videos with scenes from the show and of the different research stages of the project, and quoting some passages from the book of the same name, The Global City (Cue press, 2020), written by journalist and theatre critic Simina Maria Frigerio.

Instabili Vaganti’s tour in India will continue in Nagaland. From February 26 to March 6, they will be in Kohima for a new stage of research, exchange, and artistic co-creation within the ‘Beyond Borders’ international project, developed in co-operation with TaFMA – the Task Force for Music and Arts of the Nagaland Government, one of the international partners of the project.
The session includes a first work-in-progress created with three local dancers of Naga culture, and a series of interviews and meetings with members of local tribes aimed at making an anthropological theatrical docufilm on the Nagaland’s performing arts tradition.

The tour is supported by the Italian Cultural Institute in New Delhi, Emilia-Romagna Region and ATER Fondazione.
