The Instructors:

Cinzia Grande (Co-founder Teatro Maner Manush)

A gifted actor and costume designer/builder, Cinzia has an extensive background in intercultural theatre, studying dance, singing and martial art teachers and receiving a degree in Oriental Theatre, followed by study in India focusing on classical chanting and folk and religious music. She then performed with the mystic itinerant musicians Baul of Bengal. Her special field of theatrical research is the relationship between rituals and the body, and she also researches the ethnomusical use of voice in theatre. A professional performer in the Commedia dell ‘arte, Cinzia studied masks and techniques of International Institute of Commedia dell’Arte. She co-founded the MANER MANUSH theatre group with Andrea Lattari to make explorations into a visual approach to theatre through images and painting, and several of their performances have been presented at international festivals. Through theatre, she tries to wind historical and traditional human roots together, between western and oriental techniques and images, seeking new waves of expressions in an anthropological vision of performing arts

Andrea Lattari (Co-founder Teatro Maner Manush)

Actor, author, director, trained at the International Institute of Commedia dell’Arte in Venice (Italy). Andrea Lattari is a renowned performer of the Commedia dell’Arte and he has spent his career in intercultural theatre research, exploring anti-conventional movement and the rhythm of the body, and the link between theatre and painting. As co-founder of the MANER MANUSH Theatrical Group he has promoted collaborations and cultural exchanges on several continents, stimulated by an idea of theatre where the meeting of different cultures and all artistic discipline finds expression. Andrea has created several performances presented in international festivals (England, Slovakia, Greece, Mali). In May 2014 Andrea and Teatro Maner Manush completed a two month performance tour of the United States, and created and performed Michelangelo da Caravaggio and Artemisia throughout Italy.
