On the occasion of the eleventh edition of ART CITY Bologna, which will take place from 27 January to 5 February 2023 with a program of exhibitions, events and special initiatives, Teatri di Vita, in collaboration with MAMbo – Museum of Modern Art of Bologna, will host the performance The Teacher by Agnes Scherer.

The Teacher is an operetta staged through the reconstruction of a puppet theater in which the artist intervenes by painting and framing the scenography. The epicenter of the performance is a puppet of the teacher and around him a series of sounds and voices enliven the scene as well as twelve paintings conceived by Agnes Scherer as support diagrams for the protagonist’s speeches.

The performance will take place at Teatri di Vita (via del Pratello 90/a) on Friday 3 February at 18.30 and Saturday 4 February at 15.00 and 19.00.
