Theatre of Wonder
Theatre and science festival
Art gives us a reason to live. Science discovers how to go on living. Both are necessary and often the boundary between art and science is weak. After all, every research scientist is also an artist in some way, and every artist is a researcher. The act of creation is an artistic act, the invention is art!
This is what underlies the Theatre of Wonder 2017, the Theatre and Science Festival, where the word “theatre” has a totally artistic and emotional sense, while science aims at becoming exploration of wonder and source of curiosity. The Theatre of Wonder is a new and pioneering intuition, the result of a close cooperation between the Arditodesìo Company, Teatro Portland and the Laboratory of Communication of Physical Sciences of the Department of Physics, University of Trento.
As a matter of fact, they have been cooperating actively over the last few years for the innovative project called “Jet Propulsion Theatre”, a permanent laboratory of theatrical creation connected with science, people of science and the scientific story. Moreover, the Opera Universitaria provides the facility for the carrying out of the Festival, that is the Teatro Sanbàpolis.
In a word, this is a very special festival, for a varied and curious public, for those who love the theatre and for those who love science, to veterans of the performing arts as well as for young students who want to be fascinated. We live in a world that is deeply transformed by science, and where beauty and art countervail so much horror today. Here lies the raison d'être and the importance of the Theatre of Wonder: four shows and four Augmented Lectures … to discover the wonder!
