Short description of contents:
This article focuses on the analysis of a ten-year old festival of performing arts called "Short Theatre" which has been organized in Rome since 2006. Initially hosted at the India Theatre and later on at "La Pelanda", "Short Theatre" represents one of the most topical and up-to-date Italian occasions to explore and celebrate contemporary international experimental theatre. Moving from the investigation of the festival's own constituting idea, its main characteristics and locations, the meaning of its title, "Short Theatre", is investigated in relation to the types of performances staged during the many editions of the festival. In the last part of this essay, two shows performed at "Short Theatre" in 2013 are analysed in detail as significant examples of short theatre: "Pentesilea" ["Penthesilea"], produced by Lenz Rifrazioni, and "La semplicità ingannata" ["Simplicity Deceived"] starring Marta Cuscunà. These two shows have not been chosen for being substantially better' than others, but because they efficaciously, clearly, and even emblematically exemplify the Festival's characteristics as illustrated in this analysis.
