Teatro Magro was created as theatrical company in 1988 in Mantova. Today it is a consolidated structure, whose artistic activity moves beyond the boundaries of the avant-garde and research theater. Teatro Magro has a variegated and multidisciplinary cultural, social and didactic offer: theater workshops in schools and health facilities, readings animation, shows and performances for specific events, territorial projects, audio, video and lights services. Teatro Magro gleans from the everyday life denouncing stereotypes, the commonplace, the rhetoric, through an irony that helps keeping a high level of attention and critical observation on reality, for an independent and disenchanted perspective. Each work of art is the result of teamwork for a high-quality product characterized by the attention to the detail, together with the capacity of maintaining and transmitting its style.

The cooperative realizes didactic projects on theater, workshops with schools and cultural centers, didactic opportunities, theater workshops for adults, production of shows and videos, festivals organizations. Zero Beat productions are characterized by a peculiar interest for the contamination between languages: the work on body, on dance and physical actions, the relation between the creation of rhythm and music, the interaction with audiovisual aids, everything comes together through the balance between the stage action of the actor – physical body – the evocative art of the musician and the virtual work of the video-maker; leaving open the possibilities for the vision, the image-dream that comes true through the eyes of the spectator.
