Compagnia Teatro Dimitri
In 1978 the Compagnia Teatro Dimitri became a place where graduates and many former students gathered their first professional experience. Staged under the directions of Dimitri and other guest directors, close to 30 students have taken this unique chance and have appeared with great success in 25 theatre plays (see history) in Switzerland and abroad. Gradually, the original theatre has developed into quite a respectable enterprise, employing 25 people, as directors, secretaries, actors, stage managers, stage hands and maintenance staff.
More than 150 performances, starring-tours and home productions go on stage in Verscio every year and have made it a brand name for a unique combination of tuition and practice in the art of theatre.
The company is currently preparing a new performance.
