The territory of Bergamo is rich in theatre companies working for children, but one particular age group, the one ranging from 1 to 4 years, is scarcely taken into account.
Among different languages, the theatre is one of the most complete and nourishing: it is an actual multimedia landscape where words interact with gestures, sounds, feelings and different kinds of situations, able to convey both reality and fiction. It is a language that even the very first childhood can easily experience, drawing upon a large repository of skills and crucial interactions for the upbringing and development.
As a TYA company, we introduced a program of courses and productions addressed to the age group 1 – 4 years, named “Piccoli Sguardi” (Small Gazes).
Teatro Prova decided to take on a specific project addressed to the early years, working on workshops and productions addressed to them.
