The Compagnia ZiBa is formed by performers graduated at Scuola Teatro Dimitri (CH) and Scuola Galante Garrone di Bologna (IT).
It's a versatile company that deals with contemporary theater as with popular, street, varieté theater, a company that mixes scenic languages drifting between theater, circus, dance, mime, trying to speak to the widest range of audience.
Its first production of contemporary dramaturgy “The Den (La Tana)”, a work in progress that will debut in Spring 2015, has been already awarded in the Italian national prizes Incroci Teatrali 2015, Giovani Realtà del Teatro 2014, and Anna Pancirolli 2014, with the following motivation:
For the high skill in mamanging the relationship between body and space; for the potentiality of the expressive code and the technique; for the convincing representation of the wait and of the expectation in the expansion of the scenic time; for the attention to the visual tableaus and for the intresting visual dramaturgy.”(Giovani Realtà del Teatro)
Its varieté piece Limbus Cabaret was finalist 2014 at the International Prize of Comic Theater NiederestatterSurprize in Bozen.
Its street theater piece Slap-Romance has been programmed in international festivals such as: Buskers Bern, Festival Internazionale dell'Arte di Strada di Ascona, Locarno Film Festival, Theater Spektakel in Zurich, Danzarte in Brescia, Magie al Bordo in Bergamo...
