Rich, professional ‘TEATRO’ – theatrical repertoire – is to be regularly presented at the multi-award winning Rembrandt Hotel beginning 4 October in a major modern cultural initiative for Bangkok.
Better known for its world acclaimed Rang Mahal rooftop Indian restaurant and the modern Mexican restaurant Señor Pico, the Rembrandt Hotel Bangkok is hosting an extensive theatre production of ‘The last day of a condemned’ and multi disciplinary sessions of theatre workshops.
The project is written and directed by Mr Maurizio Mistretta, an Italian-born artist living in Bangkok, and produced by Mr Ulf Pilblad from All Soul Production and Mr Eric Hallin, general manager of the Rembrandt Hotel.
It is expected that several thematic steps will be created at the Rembrandt on monthly basis, scheduling one workshop and one performance with the same content, selected by an author or focused on a trend or a social issue.
The program in December is based on the Commedia Dell’Arte with Mr Fulvio Ianneo, an Italian theatre master and director. Fulvio will lead this workshop of the Commedia Dell’Arte where patrons will learn about the mask of Arlecchino and the final performance will be ‘Doctor Arlecchino’ composed from Canovaccio of the antique comedy company, Golosi.
Other scheduled productions are being inspired by classic European authors including Pirandello, Shakespeare, Camus, Collodi, Hugo, and Pasolini.
Mr Hallin said that theatre at the Rembrandt was “a fabulous first for Bangkok”. “Guests, patrons and Bangkok’s theatre lovers will appreciate the opportunity to attend theatre rarely accessible outside Europe. Our aim is to contribute to the city’s vibrant modern theatre offering with a mix of traditional Italian theatre, workshops, and multimedia including cinema and television.”
The two acting workshops scheduled for 10 -11 October would introduce the most progressive techniques of contemporary theatre with a large spectrum of European poetic and social productions from Hugo to Pasolini.
The Italian Theatre scheduled for 24-25 October is a multidisciplinary workshop introducing specific techniques using several different improvisations.
Some of the participants of these two workshops will be selected to participate in the theatre production of the ‘6 Pinocchio’s’ on 8 November.
