The Amedeo Avogadro Institute (Technical Instituite of the Technological Sector - high school for the applied sciences) is one of the most enduring schools in Turin, it originated in 1805 as an evening school with drawing classes at the service of the city Hall. With its thousands of students it has crossed the history of the City to the present day, facing the industrial take off at the beginning of the 20th century, fascism, the war crisis and the great post-war revival.
CONCENTRICA is much more than a showcase of performing arts: it’s a network that brings together numerous structures, from the regions Piemonte and Liguria, for the circling of multidisciplinary shows not yet presented in the territory; presenting new dramas, contaminations and innovative languages. It offers and promotes the circling of the most relevant artist from the contemporary independent theatre scene on a national level. Moreover, it’s an experience container, thanks to theatrical outings, guided tours, convivial moments, meeting opportunities, work tables, laboratories and many other side activities that enrich each edition, which starts in the summer and ends the following spring. Concentrica is a TEATRO DELLA CADUTA project.
The idea for TEATRO DELLA CADUTA was conceived by Massimo Betti and Lorena Senestro who, in 2003, open a small 50 sqm hall in the Vanchiglia area. It soon becomes the fulcrum of the Turin theatrical ferment. The productions born from Teatro della Caduta are identified by the research, use and development of the actor’s role at the center of the scene, capable to adapt to spaces and places, maintaining a close distance and a strong connection with the public.
