The Theatre in the Mirror

Simone Crestani,M.G. Rosin,Zanellato/Bortotto,AUT/Veniceartfactory+Ongaro&Fuga+MUVE


THE THEATRE IN THE MIRROR is a collaborative project exploring the void that separates our image from our being, articulated through a selection of works by designers that have created contemporary mirrors using the time-honoured traditional methods of glass production from Murano. The reflection that we see in the mirror, both of ourselves and of others, is inherently unique and particular, which is precisely what renders the reflected image without a doubt the most complex to read and interpret.


In both the mirror and the theatre recognition and illusion merge, inciting an internal state of disorder linked to our constant desire to read our identity in the image we are presented with in the reflection in the mirror or by the actor on stage.


Paid admission, for information:


Last entrance at 4.30 pm.
