Disabled Theater, performance created by Jérôme Bel, one of the well-known artists and choreographs of the contemporary theatre, has been already represented at the most prestigious festivals, international stages and important artistic events and now it will arrive to the stage of the Arena del Sole in Bologna.

Disabled Theater is a unconventional touching performance full of emotion and amusement promoting the idea of the democratisation of art.

Disabled Theater is a response to the invitation made to Jérôme Bel to collaborate with interprets of Theater HORA of Zurich, professional actors with a mental disability or with the Down syndrome. The invitation was accepted first with hesitation but it has become an extraordinary challenge.

The strong physicalness of disabled actors from the Swiss company, their particular timing and their presence in the world put ourselves in front of limits of the traditional concept of the theatre and dance in the contemporary society.

Jérôme Bel, French choreograph and stage director, lives in Paris and he works for theatres around the world. The complex of his choreographic works calls the theatre conventions into question, analysing the performance in its pure materiality.

The performance is produced in collaboration with Xing within ART CITY Bologna 2015.
