“The final working space for me is the theatre”
W/ Silvia Costa
Square Meters features Silvia Costa, italian director and performer from Treviso, Italy.
Silvia Costa proposes a visual and poetic theatre nourished by a deep reflection on images. Alternating roles as writer, director, interpreter, and set designer, this protean artist crosses different aesthetic fields in a personal exploration of Theatre.
She has created several performances (La quiescenza del seme, A sangue freddo, Alla Traccia, Midnight Snack), theatre works (Figure, Stato di Grazia, Quello che di più grande l’uomo ha realizzato sulla terra, Poil de Carotte), installations and video works (Musica da Camera, Tabula, Emotional Intelligence, Descrizione di un quadro).
Talking about her workplace she says "The final working space for me is the theatre".
For the triennium 2017-19, she was associate artist of the Teatro dell'Arte / Triennale Milano and, in 2019, of the theater Le Quai d'Angers CND. Since 2020, she is part of the artistic team of the Comédie de Valence.
Her next engagements involve some Opera creations, with the premiere of Juditha Triumphans, for the Staatsoper Stuttgart under the musical direction of Stefano Montanari. Since 2006 she has regularly collaborated and performed in the theatrical and operatic productions directed by Romeo Castellucci. Her creations are regularly presented in major Italian and international festivals.
