Women directors at the Biennale. Biennale Teatro 1934-2016
La Biennale di Venezia presents an exhibition of the ASAC Collections (Archivio Storico delle Arti Contemporanee) titled "Registe alla Biennale Teatro 1934 – 2016", open to the public from Saturday, July 15 at Ca’ Giustinian.
The display in the ground floor of Ca’ Giustinian, known as the Portego, documents the presence of women directors at the Theatre Festival from its inception in 1934 until today. This tribute stems from the same concept behind the 45th International Theatre Festival (July 25th > August 12th 2017), which its Director Antonio Latella has focused on the theme of direction by inviting only women directors.
The exhibition is made up of a selection of archival documents chosen by Antonio Latella comprising photographs, historical footage, playbills, posters, catalogues as well as the written correspondence with companies from the ASAC collections.
