Local, national and international creations, residences and choreographic research
Teatro San Materno, offers a special, unique space in Ticino: the ability to create international artistic residences.
This is a truly creative potential for the entire region, creating a network for the dissemination of art and enabling collaborations with a huge variety of internationally acclaimed artists. It is a space for support, development and visibility thanks to project platforms; it can host permanent dance workshops, where research is encouraged, featuring masterclasses, meetings, and training classes open not only to dancers, but also to musicians, directors, actors, singers, and to anyone working in the field.
A special focus is the creation of a group of young talented dancers from Ticino, who will receive permanent high-quality tuition, in addition to monthly workshops held by internationally renowned choreographers.
The aim is to create a space, a time and an energy in continuous development and reflection; to see, to get to know and to have an all-round awareness to discover new horizons; to create an open space open to an offer with high cultural value (see the specific project).
