“Last year we realized our dream of bringing the air of International Festivals to our small Teatro di Bagno a Ripoli, where we have been enthusiastically participating for over twenty years. We had the joy of seeing the warm participation of a very heterogeneous public, many people from different cultures, many families with children, aspiring actors who participated in our Master classes but also spectators intrigued by the proposals of foreign companies. A week in which every evening the theater was full of people who were not only "spectators" but were "participants" of our Festival and each one contributed to its success. How not to recreate this magical atmosphere? "
The companies that will alternate throughout the week on the stage come from Morocco, Russia, distant Siberia and the nearby Tuscany, but everyone will have the common denominator of the ability to know how to communicate to the whole family. Many languages used such as pantomime, clowning, the commedia dell'arte. We will see classic texts, fairy tales and unpublished stories. Various proposals to succeed in transmitting the love for the theater to spectators from 0 to 100 years. Also for this edition all the Festival performances will be free !
To embellish this intense week, the guests of the artistic world will alternate in the jury of honor. Daniela Morozzi, Alessandro Riccio, Doretta Boretti, Andrea Stella, Carlo Terzo, Sonia Sestini, Alla Zorina will be with us .

"Katastrofa Clown" Company - Livorno (Italy)
Andrea Fedi, aka Katastrofa Clown was born in a cold December of 1980 in Livorno. After having spent the first few years of his life understanding what he wanted to be when he grew up, he realizes that he would never have grown up and starts playing with those simple things of the past that today in the age of technology ended up in the basement , believing that with the imagination even a simple sock, a chair, a bottle of soap bubbles can create a world full of fun and joy from which to be able to give birth to a show.
A clown and a dancer, a love to conquer, objects that come to life: these are the protagonists of Dreams a visual show full of poetry, which relies on the universal language of mimicry to speak to an audience of all
age and nationalities. A show for dreamers where lights, soap bubbles, puppets and much more create a magical world, whose atmosphere is enhanced by the music of violinist David Garret.
