Following the matinée of On the difficulty of telling the truth by ErosAntEros, part of a special project dedicated to high schools in Ravenna, there will be a meeting between the students and the artists. It will include Davide Sacco and Agata Tomšič / ErosAntEros and Michele Lapini.

ErosAntEros was born from the union of Davide Sacco and Agata Tomšič in 2010. Their artistic research brings forward an engaged theater that does not give up the aesthetic value of form, in a strong relation whit the history, the present and the places in which is created, with the aim to connect theater to life and make the imagination a weapon to transform reality. Over the years they have been produced and supported by important theatrical institutions, such as Emilia Romagna Teatro ERT / Teatro Nazionale, TNL – Théâtre National du Luxembourg, Ravenna Festival, Campania Teatro Festival, Teatro della Toscana, TPE – Teatro Piemonte Europa, Teatro della Tosse. They have been involved in important international projects at: the Festival d’Avignon (in 2023 and 2022 with European Theatre Convention; in 2018 with ProHelvetia and MiBACT); the F.I.N.D. plus festival of the Schaubühne in Berlin (in 2015, with Emilia Romagna Teatro and Prospero Project); the Grotowski Institute of Wroclaw and the Odin Teatret / Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium of Holstebro (between 2014 and 2017). Since 2018 they are directing POLIS Teatro Festival.
