Theater Season 19/20

OHT | Office for a Human Theatre

Curon / Graun

Show

Duration: 50’

In 1950 a dam was built that led to the creation of the largest reservoir in the province of Bolzano. This colossal project, which local protests tried without success to prevent, caused the complete submersion of the village of Curon/Graun in Val Venosta. OHT tells its story through a hypnotic piece of musical theatre inspired by the music of the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt. Presenting the audience with a space without actors, Curon/Graun employs a slowed-down narration that combines texts and images with live performance. The flooded bell tower is the fulcrum of the scene, while the bell’s ringing, evoked by Pärt’s tintinnabuli, brings vehemently to life the invisible forces of the Alpine landscape. A piece of visual intensity that reconnects the theatrical experience to its deepest roots.  

OHT (Office for a Human Theatre) works within and outside the boundaries of theatre. Founded in 2008 by Filippo Andreatta, OHT engages with landscapes and with personal politics through their subtle treatment in both public and private spaces. The company works with national and international collaborators, including Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, Fondazione Haydn, ONDA / NYC Artists’ Salon, Romaeuropa Festival, Whitechapel Gallery, the Latitudes Contemporaines festival, Centro S. Chiara, MAXXI museo delle arti del XXI secolo. In addition, Centrale Fies and MART Museo di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto are regular partners.
