regresses to progress
retrieves the tradition, the language of our lands and waters
invents, seeks in the contemporary
living in new languages
makes fairy-tale an instrument of pedagogy, art, theatre, research, inquiry, civil engagement
every action is a work of pedagogy, it is aimed to social rehabilitation or awareness
It was born in 2015, after years of research and experience in the artistic and social field by fiabricanti Aurora Grasso and Fabrizio Bellino.
Pedagogists, they win a research grant, through the University of Padua, for a period of research and professional activity at the Puppetry in Education and Therapy Section of London School of Puppetry, in England, in Derby, where they practice various techniques of puppetry in artistic, pedagogical and therapeutic field, deepening the shadow and puppet theater, and having the opportunity to experience particular techniques of Puppetry, such as the Japanese Otome-Bunraku.
They participate in the Third International Symposium on "Puppetry:Community, Health, Well-being and Disability in the social, pedagogical and therapeutic field" at Newman University in Birmingham, in collaboration with UNIMA (International Marionette Union) Research, Development, Education and Therapy sections, meeting methods of approach from exponents of different parts of the world.
They experience an Artistic Residence in Veneto, at Palazzo Pretorio di Cittadella (PD), with Fiabrica in Residenza, a Theatre and Pedagogy project, activated by Fondazione Palazzo Pretorio, with the support of the Municipality, in collaboration with the Department of Culture and Social Services, arriving, through workshops and studies open to the community, to the creation of two pedagogical-theatrical projects: CAPPUCCETTO e il Lupo bianco, which draws inspiration from the work of Bruno Munari, exposed during the Residence and which was nourished by a direct confrontation with the Minors Coordination of the Italian Section of Amnesty International; and LACRIMA Carnevale dei Cosmi, which required a research phase at the IUAV University of Venice for an in-depth meeting with the Japanese Nō Theater and investigative activities in various areas of Italy affected by natural disasters.
They lead theater, art and pedagogy projects in educational and social contexts, in communities, assistance institutes, schools.
Their pedagogical-theater project CAPPUCCETTO e il Lupo bianco is selected for the Studies' section and, later, for the New Figures' section at the Otello Sarzi Award, as part of the Marameo Festival, in Marche, Osimo (AN).
