project Tell ourselves in Scene
Controluce Teatro d'Ombra will be at the Scuola Italiana di Madrid between 10 and 14 May for the staging and direction of a part of the didactic-performative project Tell ourselves in Scene “Let's celebrate Dante”, on the occasion of the celebrations dedicated to Dante.

On May 14 the performance resulting from the workshop will be open to students and teachers of the school in the Aula Magna from 14:30.
