The ROME THEATER FESTIVAL (ROMATEATROFESTIVAL) is an international platform of Theatrical and Educational exchanges organised by the Sofia Amendolea Rome theater Academy (Accademia di Roma Sofia Amendolea), and the Associazione Legge 180 Teatro. The festival promotes new experiences of cultural and social exchange through plays, stages, masterclasses and free acting workshops. Furthermore, it promotes the sharing of knowledge through conferences, conventions and Lectio Magistralis dedicated to drama students and young professional actors.

The RTF wants to

  • encourage and stimulate the sharing of characteristics
  • dialogue amongst the many differences in the world of European and Extra-European theatrical education
  • The RTF aims to create a cross-border critical conscience for the Italian theatre audience through the crossing of artistic and educational limits and the crossing of cultural and national barriers
  • Opening up your personal and artistic experiences to the whole world

RTF believes that these are necessary elements in order to understand how to act and how to become an actor in an authentic and professional way

Sofia Amendolea Rome theater Academy, in collaboration with Compagnia Giovani ATR (Sofia Amendolea Theater Academy’s young company) with Produzione Teatrale Legge 180 Teatro, are the Organizing Bodies and promoters of the event. The LEGGE 180 Cultural Association prepares a program of shows, seminars and debates.

WHO IS THE ROME THEATER FESTIVAL FOR?

Each edition hosts an international twinning between Italian and Foreign Institutions, be they schools of performing arts or Theatrical companies under 30.  This way, the audience of the RTF has the chance to stimulate its own critical judgement, getting to know artistic and educational institutions from different countries and comparing them in a constructive way with their own national institution.

The pupils and the young actors participating in the RTF can present their play to an international audience and can participate in masterclasses and practical workshops of theatre, dance, cinema, and performing arts, attending seminars, conferences and Lectio Magistralis of famous representatives of teaching, theatre criticism and international plays.

Experiences which they can then draw on when preparing for castings and auditions in a conscious and prepared way.

PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES OF THE ROMETHEATERFESTIVAL

The prerogative of the festival is to host Italian and European performances of State and Private Theater Academies, Intensive Experimental Laboratories, Youth Companies from Theater Schools, Theater Therapy Workshops, etc. They are, therefore, essential objectives of the ROMETEATHERFESTIVAL:
