ISO IN SOFIA AND ROME Residency: Sfumato Theatre Laboratory Bulgarian Institute of Culture
ISO IN PORTO Residency : Teatro Nacional São João Portugal, 2016
Bulgaria / Italy, 2015
The first part of their residency took place during the Small Seasons festival at the Sfumato theatre in Sofia, where they attended a workshop that dealt with Éduard Manet’s “Déjeuner sur l’herbe”, and presented their outcome to the Small Season festival audience at the end of the week. They then continued their residency in Rome, which was organised by the UTE in collaboration with the Teatro di Roma and the Bulgarian Institute of Culture in Rome. Their residency altogether lasted from 30 June to 19 July 2015, and allowed this diverse group to continue their search for a European theatre language.
In May 2016, the actors of the ISO collective attended a two-week residency in Portugal working on Karl Kraus’ “The Last Days of Mankind” together with stage director Nuno M. Cardoso and artistic director Nuno Carinhas. During their residency, they experimented with snippets from this extraordinarily long documentary play, also playing with the sound of different translations of the text.
