Since long Astràgali Teatro has been working all over Europe and the world implementing international projects (among of the most recent ones are WALLS- Separate worlds and Theatrum Mundi) with artists, theatres, universities in Greece, Cyprus, Turkey, Palestine, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Tunisia, Albania, Kosovo, France, Belgium, Great Britain, Spain, Czech Republic, Poland, China, Brazil. Its actions aim to practice the possibility of a multicultural theatre, emerging from the encounter of different languages and experiences, standing against the idea of frontier and separation as principles of conflict.
A possible place of meeting of thoughts, and, on the theatrical side, the never tired challenge of life in theatre, a challenge that leads Astràgali to visit theatrically, and practically as pioneers, some of the most fascinating or obsolete or forgotten architectonic and natural places in Italy and abroad and to open to a syncretic practice of cultural exchanges and crossings.
