Triennale Teatro dell'Arte
“A roughness that displaces, charms and unsettles”
Director of the Theater sector of the Venice Biennial for the period 2017-2020, Antonio Latella, prominent figure of Italian theater and one of the most famous artists in Europe, opens the section that Triennale Teatro dell’Arte dedicates to the Grand Masters. The director takes on the Italian author Torquato Tasso and proposes an unpublished version of Aminta. The central aspect of the mise-en-scene is the shape that Love takes in each human being. Tasso’s pastoral drama talks about the incidents in a shepherd’s life (Aminta) and his love for a nymph called Silvia. The Greek name Amyntas, originating from the verb amynein, can be translated as “the one who protects”. The one who protects what? And from whom? Defending a creative force to the point of denying it, deny love for it can transform itself into an absolute source of inspiration.
An actor, director and playwright renowned throughout Europe, Antonio Latella (Castellamare di Stabia – Italy, 1967) has lived in Berlin since 2004. He studied acting at the school of the Teatro Stabile di Torino directed by Franco Passatore and at La Bottega Teatrale in Florence founded by Vittorio Gassman. As an actor he has worked with directors Pippo Di Marca, Luca Ronconi, Giuseppe Patroni Griffi, Massimo Castri, Elio De Capitani, Walter Pagliaro, Tito Piscitelli, and Vittorio Gassman. He achieved fame in Italy and throughout Europe with his work as a director, which he began in 1998, taking his productions to the most important theatres and international festivals, from Avignon to Vienna and Salzburg.
In 2001 he won his first UBU Prize for the project Shakespeare e oltre, and in 2004 the Gassman Prize as best artist of the year. In 2013 he won his fourth UBU Prize.
As an opera director, he made his debut in 2004 in Lyon with Claudio Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo, followed by Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice and Tosca by Giacomo Puccini. Latella’s most recent productions include: A Streetcar named Desire by Tennessee Williams (2012), Die Wohigesinnten (The Kindly Ones), adapted from the monumental novel by French-American author Jonathan Littell, produced by the Schauspielhaus of Vienna with an Austrian cast (2013), The Importance of Being Earnest from Oscar Wilde (2015). In 2016 he presented Oedipus adapted from Sophocles at the Theater Basel and the marathon Santa Estasi – Atridi: otto ritratti di famiglia at the Teatro delle Passioni in Modena with actors and playwrights from the Course in Higher Education of the Fondazione Emilia Romagna Teatri.
He was the Artistic Director for the Nuovo Teatro Nuovo in Naples for the 2010/2011 season. In 2011 he founded his own company stabilemobile.
