EPPUR SI MOUVE!
Many have been neglecting it by saying that it is losing the battle with the much powerful media, such as television, cinema and internet. It is true that its thousand years of existence have imprinted scars in it, but it is exactly these scars making it more desirable. Today, some new generations have been discovering its charm, by filling its halls to search exceptional experience, in return to passions, emotions, life… Right because of this, with a great pleasure, by using this modern slang, we say it’s IN! Therefore we address our call to you, so that you come in, and that’s why - IN THEATRE. Its hospitality is witnessed by its antic beginnings, when, during the performances, the audience would attend delightfully, not wanting to interrupt the magical momentum of creation. Even today the audience remains faithful to the tradition of warm hospitality extended by the host. Thus, we say THEATRE IN(N). Some prefer to use its name in negative connotation (don’t make theatre out of this, this is not a theatre, this is a serious matter). That is why THEATER IN THEATER.
