The pandemic has changed the way we relate to each other, to life in general, and perhaps in the most radical way, it has changed the dynamics of the performative scene. We have learned to constantly adapt, to look for new means, to survive, to find ways to get in touch with the public, even when it seemed impossible. We are going through a period that has generated uncertainty, mistrust, frustration, but also a period that has given rise to necessary searches and unexpected, hybrid productions, proof that theatre will always find forms of survival. The series of the 4 performances work in progress creart / Teatrelli and "The Walks" by Rimini Protokoll are, without a doubt, the "stubborn" creations of these times:

The collective performance "INT.EXT" was created at a time when theatres were closed, being designed as a statement-manifesto, a guerrilla-type show, presented not on a stage, but in the showcases of Galateca contemporary art and design gallery. A performance about the status of the independent artist and about the meaning of art in today's world, fundamentally modified by the consequences generated by the pandemic.

"The Widow Boy" is a performance that delves into the deep intimacy of interpersonal relationships, social stigmas and talks about the intimate and political wounds of the world. After this long isolation, theatre can become an art of healing.

„4 Speeches” performance installation was conceived as a polyphonic, democratic exposition, meant to question - with specific means - the current pandemic issue: individual versus society versus political system versus consumerist or militant policies.

Dual - a performance about friendship, about its duality, about the many facets of this strange relationship, especially in the context of behavioural changes caused by the pandemic. An invitation to look at friendship beyond the cliché and, at the same time, a form of search for the means of artistic expression.

THE WALKS by Rimini Protokoll, an international co-production, an experimental performance that grasps walking as a theatrical scenario. Created as a smartphone app, "The Walks" is a collection of 9 short audio-guided walks designed for specific locations in any city in the world and an invitation to rediscover and interact with your surroundings. Voices, sounds and music transform, step by step, familiar places into scenery and different landscapes into authentic theatre scenes.
