TACT Festival

Trieste International Youth Theatre Festival

A proposito del progetto

Theater is creativity and sharing, through it people challenge themselves and society grows. That's why many theater groups were born all around Europe: to share this wonderful experience.

To make these realities meet, and improve through mutual exchange we are organizing....

...TriesteACT! the first European youth theater festival of Trieste!

Description of the project

5 days

10 groups

100 actors

Our project aims to involve many different theater realities from all over Europe.

The Festival will take place in Trieste lasting around five days, during which, the participating groups will perform their own show and each of the directors will offer their knowledge in the framework of daily workshops open to all university students.

During this five days, we intend to offer the following activities:

- The first day we will start with an introductory meeting, during which the directors, their methodology and the organization of the Festival will be presented.

- Every morning from 10am to 2pm each member of the guest groups will take part to a workshop of their choice, with a director different from his own.

- Each workshop will last all five days of the Festival (around 20 hours); workshops are open to all university students.

- Every days two groups will give a performance open to the whole city.

-The conclusive night the hosting groups and the partecipant will partecipate at launching of Sky Lantern on the magnific scenary of molo audace in front of Piazza Unità (the biggest european  square in front of the sea)

Participation is open to groups coming from all over Europe. For this first edition we are planning to invite 10 groups hoping to have enough success to enlarger this number in the following editions.

For the occasion, the CUT is preparing "The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade"

Potential of our project and conclusion

In this context, our experience is capable to attract a wide audience, thanks to the rich cultural history of Trieste and its central position in Europe.

Indeed, till now we have been able to catch the interest and enthusiasm of many Institutions such as the University (through Trieste E.R.Di.S.U Office), and the "Regione Autonoma Friuli Venezia Giulia" State administration which has donated 10.000€, half of the necessary amount needed to realize the project.

With your donation we will be able to offer all groups board and lodging. They will be host at the “Ostello Scout Alpe Adria” which doesn't just offer a comfortable accommodation, but has a full equipped kitchen as well. We hope this way to make them fill welcome and at home.

In conclusion, because of our experience in theater, the wide interest for theater and the choice of the location in the beautiful city of Trieste, we think that our activity will be able to attract many people and that in few years it will become a point of reference for young theater groups all over the Europe.

A proposito del progettista

To be a good actor you have to let your ego go,

work in a humble way learning from others

plurality and beauty.

Per esser un buon attore bisogna abbandonare l’ego,
lavorare con umiltà, imparando dagli altri,
pluralità è bellezza”

Presentation and aim of our association and project

Life is theater, an idea as ancient as the world itself, which inspires the work of our association:CUT - Centro Universitario Teatrale.

A University Theater Association based in Trieste, Italy which for the last four years has been organizing an annual theater course addressed to all university students, held by Aldo Vivoda, who teaches passionately his art.

Aldo Vivoda has been working in theater for 40 years. After beginning his career in Trieste, he worked as an actor for many years in the prestigious Theatre du Soleil directed by Arianne Muskin and afterwards he interpreted and directed plays in the most important European theaters.

He is assisted by his pupil Valentina Milan who, after many successful years as an athlete, decided to move to theater. Now she flanks him in all his works as the vice-president of the Petit Soleil.

Meeting every week, all students work both on the physical and the theatrical part, bringing up a play which every year achieves resounding success.

Nevertheless, the greatest of our results is to spread the passion for theater and the knowledge of it among young people, as well as improving the ability to relate to each other, themselves and to the working world, becoming this way better members of the society.

In order to achieve this vision in the best way, export it and create all together something new, we are organizing the first edition of the Trieste Youth Theater Festival: TriesteACT
