About O Thiasos:
The project O Thiasos TeatroNatura directed by Sista Bramini was started in 1992 in order to investigate, through the tools of theater, the relationship between dramatic art, ecological awareness and natural environment. This encounter leads to a rethinking of the actor’s art related to its presence on the stage and the conception of dramaturgy, directing, scenography and musical composition. In this theatrical research, the use of the voice, through storytelling and singing has a central role. Camilla Dell'Agnola, trainer, musician, actress and singer and Valentina Turrini, actress and singer conduct a specific research on the relation between traditional songs and natural acoustics.
