25 companies, 20 evenings, 7 national premieres, 7 Roman premieres, 5 sections, 4 theaters, 3 districts: these are the numbers of the Festival Inventaria - La festa del teatro off, the festival which has reached its eighth edition this year. Organized by artists for artists, Inventaria has established itself as the closing event of the theater's theatrical season, maintaining its focus on contemporary dramaturgy and on the plurality of hosted languages.
Twenty-one proposals were selected from among the over 400 submissions received from all over Italy and abroad to offer a wide range of off theater performances for languages and genres, to which are added five out-of-competition proposals.
The Festival, organized by the company DoveComeQuando, is completely self-financed and will take place in the four main theaters off three different districts of the Capital: Teatro Argot Studio and Teatro Trastevere (Trastevere), Coaches n.o.t. (Ostiense) and Studio Uno (Torpignattara) and will be divided into four sections of the competition (Performances, Monologues / Performances, Theatrical Courts and the new Demo section dedicated to studies and projects in progress) and one out of competition.
