LA SCUOLA D'ESTATE

LA SCUOLA D'ESTATE
by Jacopo Quadri
Country: Italy
Year: 2014
Duration: 87'


Luca Ronconi chose Umbria as the region where he could create a place for young actors and actresses, where they could generate a theatrical short-circuit, free from the influences and deadlines of production. In an old renovated barn in Santa Cristina, we discover the teacher in the role of an elderly child engaged in role-play, vocal exploration, seeking the characters’ secret folds, engaged in a fascinating examination of scripts.
