Varété - Varietà: dallo spazio con umore
The summer variété, presented by the 2nd-year-students of our school, has become a traditional event, highly appreciated by a constantly increasing audience. The particular theatrical form of the variété allows the students to demonstrate their individual talents as well as their abilities at teamwork.
The "Variété - Varietà 2008" is directed by Corinna Vitale, dance-teacher and choreographer, and Oliviero Giovannoni, teacher for rhythm and composer.
The show assembles various scenes - performed by small groups or soloists - proposed by the students, as well as choreographies for movement and rhythm performed by the whole class - not to miss!
“Spectators”: Dimitri Theatre School wins prizes in Rome and Bratislava
In the summer of 2008, the final-year students on the Dimitri Theatre School’s BA course won all the honours on a tour that took them to Arezzo, Rome, Bratislava and Prague. In Rome, the Verscio-based group won five of the eight prizes awarded at Romateatrofestival, a showcase for the best productions by European theatre schools. As well as the main prize, the Verscio production won the awards for best choreography and best stage design, received President Giorgio Napolitano’s silver medal, and brought home the special Sofia Amendolea Prize. A few days later, at the celebrated Istropolitana Project Festival held in the Slovak capital, Bratislava, the Dimitri Theatre School won two of the five prizes awarded: for best group work, as well as the audience prize.
(The piece is due to be staged again in the summer of 2009, on a tour that will take in several European festivals. For detailed information, please contact the School administration).

At the centre of the inner courtyard of the Teatro Dimitri are eleven heavily made-up actors. They are doing their level best to sneak in without paying, and the bouncer catches them a number of times. Finally, they hide on the stage. As nothing is going on and they are bored, they pretend to be musicians, improvising with watering cans, bicycles and megaphones. They dance and tell love stories, sleep-walk, climb the walls and trip over one another. With the sketchiest gestures, they tell complete stories: a man kisses a woman, and only his insecure, trembling hands reveal the tragedy of a love that is not returned. An evening of poetry; the standard of choreography and acrobatics is very high. The audience is enthusiastic; seats sold out.
