Accademia Teatro Dimitri Master Ludmila Jesutova - IF

Teatro Dimitri

The cultural center founded by legendary Clown Dimitri.

Located in the beautiful countryside of the Terre di Pedemonte area near Locarno, the Teatro Dimitri was founded in 1971 by Clown Dimitri and his wife Gunda. Initially, its tradition lay within the art of clowning, non-verbal theatre and burlesque theatre. Nowadays it combines its traditional history with a dynamic and up-to-date cultural program.

We count on the authenticity of a location that has evolved naturally, on its uniqueness as well as on excellence. New perspectives are being developed, as is proven by a series of top-level events by outstanding national and international artists.

The program comprises contemporary theatre, dance performances, live concerts, family and children’s performances and thematic festivals. It is completed by shows featuring members of the Dimitri family, as well as students and graduates of the Accademia Teatro Dimitri, one of four theatre schools in Switzerland.

More than a place for high-quality performing arts, the Teatro Dimitri aims to be a space for inspiring meetings, a place for shared experiences, for interesting talks and for time spent in the middle of nature. You will be able to enjoy this in three indoor stages, an outdoor space in the park and a pleasant restaurant.

A top-notch cultural program in an intimate and vibrant surrounding – this is what the Teatro Dimitri offers to its audience.

We look forward to seeing you at our Theatre!
