Various stage arts occupying the urban space and transforming the city into a huge open air theatre. The audience becomes a group of travellers who move from stage to stage through a drama exchange of dancing, acting, singing and performing.
Each theatrical invasion is different and it is created according to the architectural features of each space. Squares, courtyards, streets, facades, balconies or cloisters become stages for our performances.
Theatre invasions are just one more step in Comediants’ research to transform the public space and create magical and ephemeral moments of meeting and festive communication through the arts.
