A new book by Fabrizio Crisafulli on his "Theatre of Places" project. In this project the location in not the place where works that have been prepared elsewhere are “staged”, but is rather a structural element of theatrical creativity itself, not only in its visual and spacial aspects, but also as far as texts, actions, rhythms and sounds are concerned. In this context the site is also understood to be the “text”. At present when physical spaces, and the relations that take place within them have been weakened by the advent of new forms of communication such as virtual reality or the Internet, the urgent need for a “Theatre of Places” is evident. These new methods of communication are extremely pertinent elements of transformation, and the activities taking place in these sites lead to a new balance between the local and the global.
