Overview
More
Located in the beautiful countryside of the Terre di Pedemonte area near Locarno, the Teatro Dimitri was founded in 1971 by Clown Dimitri and his wife Gunda. Initially, its tradition lay within the art of clowning, non-verbal theatre and burlesque theatre. Nowadays it combines its traditional history with a dynamic and up-to-date cultural program: contemporary theatre, dance performances, live concerts, family and children’s performances and thematic festivals. It is completed by shows featuring members of the Dimitri family, as well as students and graduates of the Accademia Teatro Dimitri, one of four national theatre schools in Switzerland. More than a place for high-quality performing arts, the Teatro Dimitri aims to be a space for inspiring meetings, a place for shared experiences, for interesting talks and for time spent in the middle of nature. You will be able to enjoy this in three indoor stages, an outdoor space in the park and a pleasant restaurant.

We went to see this teatre yesterday evening, 23rd May 2015. We enjoyed the humor and charme of this young couple of clown and jongleurs on the stage. Something very special and simple, yet full of humour and grace
