Campsirago Residenza has always had a strong focus on education, right from ScarlattineTeatro’s earliest efforts. For Campsirago Residenza education means first and foremost sharing theatre as and inclusive instrument of personal discovery and a means of exploring the world. Ultimately, it is all about experiencing with others.
Right from Aeschylus or Shakespeare, theatre has always had a vital role to play in the development of humankind due to the way in which it can put on stage all the players involved in a conflict, each with their own point of view, afterthoughts, and moment in the limelight. Theatre is a powerful tool for communicating experience inter-culturally through relationship dynamics and the validation of differences. Theatre, from the Greek theatron (literally the place of beholding), can rely on many different points of view due to the way it involves nature, the community and the context in which it takes place, as well as the actors and spectators. Theatre is made of deep considerations, enjoyment, relationships, rhythm and energy, allegorical transformation, artistic creation, wonder and vision.
We have been developing our workshops for over twenty years, informed by our long experience with theatrical education on all levels. We use these activities to work on positive group identity, on the discovery of each person’s performing potential and on the holistic relationship with the world around us.
