Teatro della Limonaia and Laboratorio Nove present:
International festival between cities
The festival's name alone gives a good indication of the basic formula behind it. In Italy, an "Intercity" is a train that connects up two large cities quickly and directly. The manifestation wishes to do the same thing by equally efficiently placing the city of Florence and Sesto F.no in communication with another city in the world, in order to give the public an idea of what can be seen there, and how the world of the theatre is organized and functions in different environments. Apart from hosting the various theatre and ballet companies selected from the area of research, the programme of the festival, which continues for over three weeks, also includes two mixed productions: one with Italian actors and a foreign director and the other directed by an Italian, and based on contemporary scripts by authors from the selected country.. The programme also includes exhibitions, theoretical and practical seminars, meetings and debates. Since the 1992 edition, which was dedicated to MONTREAL, we have also opened a section on the playwriting of the chosen country, with the presentation of various scripts translated especially for the festival and performed as a "mise en espace" by Italian actors during a meeting where the authors are present. These scripts have been published in a free edition of Intercit Plays since 1995.
