ENG/ITA

La Ballata dei Lenna is a group founded in 2012 by Nicola Di Chio, Paola Di Mitri e Miriam Fieno, after their degree at the Civica Accademia d’Arte Drammatica “Nico Pepe” of Udine.
We are particularly interested in investigating the relationships between people and their everyday life, in the attempt to highlight the conflicts that stand into collective consciousness.
The idea of a play as collective representation leads us to seek and employ a variety of languages in our works: from spoken to physical language, from sound to image, from the actor’s body to his fragmentation. Our plays are the result of a collective writing work, as well as of acting and directing. Besides the production of new plays, the group in also involved in collaboration with other Italian companies as well as in educational projects, workshops and Festival’coordination.
