Il Mutamento

Turin, Italy

Il Mutamento is a professional theatre production company operating as a nonprofit cultural association founded by playwright and theatre director Giordano Amato. Their mission is to create a unique artistic space and facilitate the spread of the artistic and spiritual heritage of different cultures. The company presents original productions every year and organises cultural events featuring talentuous Italian and international artists, as their flagship annual festival ISAO (Il Sacro Attraverso l’Ordinario - The Sacred Through the Ordinary). Il Mutamento also organises numerous artistic workshops and labs for children, youth, migrants, disabled persons and others audiences. Their artistic style derives from experimental theatre (labelled in Italy as "teatro di ricerca" or "teatro di innovazione") and "poor theatre" (the performance style concentrated on an actor, with minimum scenography, which in their case is often manifested in intense monologues or duets). In their activities they often tackle spirituality in the widest sense of the word; and are committed to the exploration of psychological and social vulnerabilities, and to the empowerment of vulnerable subjects. The stories they tell are often dream-like; transmitted through impressions, poetry, choral actions and actors’ movements; and are often inspired by Oriental traditions and the psychomagic. The artistic quality and operational capacity of Il Mutamento is recognised by the Italian Ministry of Culture (MIBAC) and other prestigious national and regional institutions from the public and private sectors.
