Campsirago Residency


Campsirago Residency, led by ScarlattineTeatro, belongs to Être Association, the Lombardy Theatre Residencies network. Campsirago Residency promotes hospitality and long permanence of artists and spectators, suggesting a constant relationship between audience and landscape, community and territory and paying attention to different artistic languages. It is a driving force of artistic and cultural initiatives aimed at promoting communication, in close touch with local administrations and interested subjects.

Cantiere Campsirago takes place on these basis, offering a place (see below - Studio), a time, a quality work.

Long time needed to realize a handmade product, as an artistic production, is often difficult to find due to practical availabilities, especially for breakthrough artists, and market rules. Campsirago, on the contrary, offers this extra-ordinary time, able to promote concentration and productive improvement.

Work quality… Supporting guest companies’ production means also promoting work sharing and opening. Together with ScarlattineTeatro, its technicians, actors and playwrights, with other artists, with different backgrounds, with people of the district, with other performing realities, beyond the province, region, nation. 

Cantiere Campsirago is supported by Fondazione Cariplo, collaborates with Lombardy Region and Colle Brianza municipality and, for this 2014 edition, with the Residency’s wide national and international network. It is addressed to national and international artists and companies, with special attention to breakthrough realities: the aim is to promote new productions.
