The workshop brought together immigrants and Italians, professional actors and theatre lovers. The original dramaturgy- by Franco Brambilla- is a re-writing of “The 1001 Nights” on a contemporary perspective. Themes like the journey, the stranger and the struggle for the rights of the most vulnerable people are linked to the recent Italian history.

Festival:
The Festival 1,6,7 Contatto! has been sponsored by the municipality of Reggio Emilia since 2008 and it takes place in the neighbourhood of the railway station, a high-tension zone where migration dynamics are determining changes at the urban and social scale.
