Muta Imago – biographical notes
edited by Gaia Polidori
Muta Imago is a theater company founded in 2004 by director Claudia Sorace who attended the Civica Scuola di Teatro Paolo Grassi in Milan and by playwright/sound designer Riccardo Fazi, who graduated in Humanities from the University La Sapienza of Rome.
Their work project centers on a research of forms and stories that relate the sphere of imagination with that of reality. This emerges in a clear aesthetic choice inclined to constructing by images, which fits into the groove of a visionary, conceptual theater. The idea underlying the name “Muta Imago” is the will not to limit the company’s experience exclusively to aspects of the theater and to focus primarily on the image and its change. Muta then in the sense of “mutation”, from the Italian, but also “silent”, from the Latin, to contain within itself a universal element, a value, regardless of its relationship with space and time.
