Civile collects and connects forays of young citizens who have chosen to become actors.

Civile spreads monologues, presentations, shreds, assaults and theatre performances made of the same material of the actors interpreting them.

The actor’s condition is a stunning and controversial phenomenon.

Artists have always kept the pace of change and followed the highly imaginative evolution of their times which they should forerun, intepret and reflect.

Prospective actors are contemporary artists by nature, therefore observing their actions is one of the most important ways to reflect about our society’s cultural evolution.

In fact, choosing to become an actor is a conscious life project.

Civile suggests a new way to establish a relationship with the public, assuming that each actor may play the role of himself, a social animal making a hard choice. Such choice implies making various steps and living narratively fascinating situations.

Thanks to Civile, a group of young people who have chosen to be actors in contemporary society, reveal what springs pushed them to follow that direction; moreover, they display the strongly imaginative horizons they created around their activity and show the daily routine underpinning their choice.

Civile is a stance arising from the need to reflect with other people about the serious and violent cultural involutions of some contemporary trends.
