Trainig is research aims to respond to an important need in the field of training about performing arts, trying to establish a practical-theoretical reflection able to overcome the dichotomy between laboratory / research and production / staging (or trainer / academic and performer / professional). As the events of the PerformAzioni Festival, the meeting aims to overcome the convention formula dedicated only to professionals, to also aspire to the involvement of both citizens and students in artistic and literary subjects and, obviously, of people that are interested in theater and performing arts, even as spectators.
