since 1975

an historical Italian creative crew

More Than 4 Decades Experience

The artistic core of Stalker Teatro have worked together since setting up the ‘Political Collective’ at Turin Academy of Fine Arts in 1975, the heyday of Italy’s post-68 cultural and political uproar. This has left an enduring mark on the company’s work which is characterised by a strong commitment to artistic experimentation within socially sensitive and challenging situations.
The founding members of Stalker Teatro were involved with Turin City Council’s ground-breaking ‘cultural animation’ projects in the late 70s and helped set-up Turin’s first professionally run youth theatre in 1976.

In 1981 they started a residency in Italy’s largest psychiatric clinic in Grugliasco which led to the formal foundation of Stalker Teatro in 1986, inspired by the film “Stalker” by the russian film maker Andrej Tarkovskij.
In the 1990s, during a five-year residency at Cittadellarte, Stalker Teatro has developed important projects with Michelangelo Pistoletto in Italy and Europe at festivals, theaters, universities and prestigious museums of contemporary art.
Using a distinctive style developed from site-specific events, performance art and participatory theatre, Stalker Teatro have performed throughout all major locations and festivals in Europe and beyond.

The Herald

“Director Gabriele Boccacini has achieved what a million town planners have walled-in and made impossible, liberating hearts and minds by giving them space. In an ideal world, it would always be thus.”

Glasgow, (N. Cooper)

Chalon Dans La Rue

“Se poser, regarder, écouter, respirer… Se laisser porter par le très beau spectacle que Stalker Teatro propose dans la cour de la maison des associations … Voilà un instant magique”.

Chalon, (A. Proust)

La Provence

“Au fil du spectacle, le public est conduit dans différents lieux à l’extérieur puis à l’intérieur de l’Université: il “vogue” de surprise en surprise. Si le spectateur participe activement au spectacle, il n’y est pas contraint et forcé mais invité avec délicatesse. Une interprétation déroutante”.

Avignon, (C. Dehoux)
