A bigger house.
The festival is the focal point in the year
of fActors – but it’s not the only one.
Together we build new things.
FAcT lasts for more than three days
Laboratories, seminars, workshops, partnerships: the experience of the festival does not confine itself to three days, but keeps going all through the year, with events and initiatives in all the city – and beyond.
Theatre also consists of research, experiments, communication: by cooperating with other associations and institutions, fActors creates new occasions to speak about theatre.
Let’s grow up,
To learn, having fun: fActors for schools.
fActors cooperates with Pisa highschool liceo classico G. Galileiin the education of its students: through specific internships the association hosts some students of the Liceo, involving them in all the aspects of creating a big event (from the website to every part of the Festival).
Moreover, the Liceo is directly involved in the programme of the Festival, with performances and workshops. A different way to learn, grow up, and have fun.
fActors is looking for new partners: new schools to work with throughout the year.
“It allowed me to better understand the world of work. An interesting
and not without
I could also work with
an English theatre group:
I can’t deny it was fun!”
“To grow up, to learn to work with other people, and to become aware that working hard you can take active part in the organization of complex events – having fun”

Theatre in jail
From the partnership between fActors, the SNS Theatre Group, the Scuola Normale, the Sacchi di Sabbia and the prison of Pisa, Don Bosco, a new project has sprung, to create a place for university students and inmates to meet. Through theatre.
Starting 2018, the theatre lab in prison, directed by Francesca Censi, hosts some “normalisti”: the students will work alongside the inmates to stage a play. An occasion to get to know and understand each other, and to reflect on the meaning of culture.
To Pisa, and beyond!
fActors in Tuscany
Young students at the Città del Teatro
In 1993, coming from a decennial experience, a new foundation (Fondazione Sipario Toscana onlus) was born in Cascina: a centre for theatre productions that threads together many weaves and interests – street theatre, theatre for boys, civil art theatre, universities. Later on, the foundation gives life to La Città del Teatro, since 2015 recognized as National Centre for Theatre Productions, and one of Tuscany’s most important theatres.
Faithful to its mission, La Città del Teatro has involved the students of the Scuola Normale in a project of research and formation: theatre workshops on ancient drama and its staging, specifically devoted to students from Tuscany’s high schools, and led by the “normalisti” and by professional teachers. A way to keep the bond between theatre, youth, and universities alive – and to find out, all together, new ways of expression.
