World Theatre Day was conceived at the World Congress of the UNESCO International Theatre Institute in Vienna (ITI) in 1961. It is celebrated annually on the 27th March. Every year a figure of world stature is invited to pronounce a message on the theme of theatre and a culture of peace. “A long time ago, those in power resolved their intolerance of ‘comedians’ by banishing them from the country. Today, actors and theater companies have trouble finding public spaces, theaters and audiences—everything because of the crisis”: with such daunting words Dario Fo – a playwright, theatre director, actor, composer, and recipient of the 1997 Nobel Prize in Literature – opened 2013 International Theatre Institute’s World Theatre Day Message. This Conference is intended to contribute reflections on the theme of gender and violence and have a number of women playwrights from Italy and English-speaking countries read from works of their own centered on the same theme. The author of the Message of World Theatre Day 2014 is the South African playwright, designer, director and installation maker Brett Bailey.Gli articoli di Teatro e Critica, che sono frutto di un lavoro quotidiano di ricerca, scrittura e discussione approfondita, sono gratuiti da 8 anni.
