Eugenio Barba | Existential excavator

Theatre director, researcher, educator, writer

"Working with one's own ghosts, one's own obsessions and illusions means lending one's ear to bodiless voices that guide us. Personal tradition is an echo that comes from afar." - Eugenio Barba

Eugenio Barba’s work “has spanned many fields: the artistic creation of performances, theoretical reflection, pedagogy and the transmission of experience, the preservation of historical memory, the scientific study of the actor/dancer’s technique, the use of theatre ‘outside the theatre’ in social and crosscultural contexts throughout the world with the aim of activating relationships between different cultures and ethnic groups.”
