What is it about?
The cultural association “L’Elefante”, with the formation of a theatre company in Nepi, in the province of Viterbo, proposes the creation of a Theatre of Folkloristic Research.
The purpose of the project is find and analyze various historical documents in the territory of Nepi and Tuscia viterbese. Based on these sources will be written the plays to be represented.
We would like to play also other shows of theatre culture, as reinterpretations of classic and modern texts. In addition, we would like to organize live events, such as workshops, film clubs, concerts and many other things.
How funds will be used
Your offer will be useful to cover the necessary expenses, such as the sets, lights, costumes, the SIAE and the maintenance of the theatre S. Pellegrino of Nepi, granted by the cultural association “La nuova Torretta”.
Every single contribution will be significant to achieve our goal. With this contribution we can cover the necessary expenses to realize a professional performance. We all hope that this performance will start a project that will involve many local professional sectors.
Who's behind the project?
We are a cultural association composed mainly by young people and we want to initiate a project of re-evaluation of the territory through theater and other live performing arts. The association is made up of people in the theatre industry and not. What unites us is the will and pleasure of promoting culture. It is based in Nepi, in the province of Viterbo. He works primarily on the territory of Tuscia, however, seeking to expand its territorial area through the projects proposed.
The name Elephant is for us the roots of culture and art in the territory, referring also to the extraordinary mnemonic ability of the animal. We would like to be a means of knowledge handed down from one territory to another.
