"Residenza DI LATO - playwrights at SISSA"

On Sunday 9 December, a special event will present the outcome of the artist in residence programme

As part of UFO initiatives, an event entitled “Residenza DI LATO – playwrights at SISSA” will take place in the foyer of SISSA Aula Magna Paolo Budinich on Sunday 9 December, starting from 6 pm. The show will present the work of playwrights Marco Di Stefano and Chiara Boscaro who participated in the "artist in residence programme" at SISSA in Autumn 2018. Actresses Ariella Reggio and Marcela Serli, together with theatre expert Roberto Canziani, will take part in the event.

"UFO-center of residences, study and participation" is a three-year programme conceived by actress, director and playwright Marcela Serli for La Contrada Theatre. The initiative aims to explore the relationship between artists and the scientific and cultural community of Trieste. During the event, Roberto Canziani will give a speech entitled “Parole che abitano la scena contemporanea” ("Words living in contemporary scene") about the evolution of theatre in recent decades whereas Di Stefano and Boscaro will talk about their experience with SISSA scientists and students. Ariella Reggio and Marcela Serli will perform a reading based on the texts written by the two playwrights and inspired by their SISSA residency. The event will be held in Italian. All are welcome!
