Panorama Roma, project cured by Fabrizio Arcuri, grew from the fabric of Short Theatre and brought together other Roman organisations. It refers to a co-creative zone of research and reflection that caters to the needs of Rome’s artistic community in which they are invited to share facets of their creative journey and modus operandi.
In 2020 Panorama Roma looks out for a wider view on Roman cultural production, researching new models of artistic process and the confluences that can feed into them; all of this through the overlapping with Fabulamundi Playwriting Europe. The artists and companies chosen worked on international texts selected over these three years which are as yet unpublished in Italy, setting up Short Theatre’s run as a kind of creative construction site visible to the public. La Pelanda hosted a series of open rehearsals, where the various companies take turns working on their commissioned texts, giving an audience the ability to witness artistic process give life to its creation at first hand – magmatic, chaotic, in the flesh!
Panorama Roma, five days of open rehearsals led by five Italian companies on five Fabulamundi texts:
