3-9 Sept. This is the fifth edition of an interesting festival directed by Giorgio Barberio Corsetti, with his company Fattore K. Right from the beginning, Corsettis work has been marked by complex research involving the use of different elements such as speech, movement, song, music and especially video and the use of stage machinery as a means of telling the story. In 1999 he became the artistic director of the Theatre Section of the Venice Biennale, where in the summer of 2001 he presented Georg Bchners Woyzeck. During his three years at the Biennale he opened it up to different forms of contemporary creativity, including the circus. This was the moment when circus arts became a part of Corsettis artistic research, leading to fruitful collaboration with the French artists of Les Colporteurs for two shows inspired by Ovids Metamorphoses, which opened with Metamorphoses at the Venice Biennale in 2002, followed by Of Animals, Men and Gods, created in 2003 within the archaeological area of Syracuse. In 2002, Fattore K created this new Roman project, Metamorphoses a border festival between the theatre and the circus.
