ATOPOS, generi teatranti

Thu 28 September 2017

Atopos Compagnia Teatrale is an Italian theatre company bringing together professional and non-professional actors, both trans- and cisgender. This documentary is about their experiences in the creation of Atopos’ flagship production, Human Variables. The film describes reality through chronicling the making of a play, a conventionally fictitious endeavour. Human Variables is a show that builds on the real life experiences of the actors appearing on stage, ready to lay themselves bare at the same time as putting on a costume. A story of the eternal dialectic between actor and character, truth and fiction, life and theatre.
