Storie Migranti in Scena
One of my best friends is a theatre director and when I was still living in Milan, Italy, I happened to shoot his end-of-the-year plays at the Civica Scuola di Teatro Scuola Paolo Grassi. One of his latest works is the direction of two plays out of the five short pieces that make up Storie Migranti in Scena, a workshop in which playwrights, directors and actors came together to create scripts that deal with the everyday lives of migrants in Europe. The premiere took place at the Teatro Filodrammatici, just metres away from the more internationally-known Teatro La Scala in the centre of Milan.
Some of the actors were Italian, some Italian of foreign origin, others migrants themselves with different personal histories – some professional actors and others amateurs. They took the audience from the Jungle of Calais to future dystopias. You can find the full credits here.
