Theatre projects around the world

The world needs beauty, in its art forms of music, dance, theatre

Theatre is a fundamental tool for promoting mutual knowledge between people of different cultures, traditions, and languages. It impacts social communication and affects personal growth.
Each Centocani theatre project follows a studied and tested plan-passages based on experience. We define tailored solutions for good results. Our goal is to achieve a creative, educational and fulfilling experience.

Our theatre projects strive to express the relation between the arts and the local culture of a population. We consider it a success when the involved communities develop a newfound interest in their origins! We have experienced first hand the benefits theatre can bring. 
Who can benefit from this knowledge? Actually everybody in each area: work and business, academic and professional, personal and inner.

Artistic phase

The relationship between theatrical art and local cultures

Representing the soul of people is a great responsibility, there must be a parallel path between ideation and folklore.
Considering each detail is the key for a successful theatre performance. We plunge into the culture and traditions of each place.
We explore customs, myths, fairy tales, legends, proverbs, popular beliefs, music, song, dance, superstitions. The colors, the shapes, the dimensions.

The imagination comes to life when the original fabric can be tailored to highlight essential values. It’s about folklore meeting classical studies.
The best part of each theatre project? Sharing moments with a therapeutic approach.
