At the core of the research of exvUoto teatro there is the attempt to understand and know the feeling of emptiness and/or the sense of spiritual dryness that the modern-day man is living. He may be no longer alienated, but he is certainly inured and anaesthetized.
Indeed, exvUoto teatro starts from emptiness in order to look for the source of feelings and life. We alternate specific training sessions on stage (physical and vocal training) with rehearsals off-stage of all the plays written by us. We look around us, we “lose time” because of ineffable feelings and we try to transform them into written words first and then into images, or vice versa. We work through symbols and metaphors.
We face people’s looks. We perform out on the streets, defenceless. We put ourselves on display by rehearsing our shows in full view of passers-by in the display window of a vacant shop. Public ridicule and intimate pornography. Even though we still have our clothes on. We work on stillness. We use a lot of music in order to cover our breaths, but we also suddenly turn it off to listen to their sounds or to the sound of joints that start moving again.
