The sixteenth triennial colloquium of the Société Internationale pour l’étude du Théâtre Médiéval will be held in Genova, Italy from July 8-13 2019, the length of the congress depending on the number of papers.

Performances of relevant dramatic pieces have long been intrinsic to these triennial conferences. This is an open call for production proposals for the 2016 conference.

There will be four general themes for the conference, and production proposals relating to these themes are particularly welcome. The topics of the conference are:

  1. costumes and stage decoration
  2. manuscripts and early prints
  3. sacre rappresentazioni
  4. Medieval theater and interaction, circulation and cultural/religious exchanges in the Mediterranean region.

Please indicate in your proposal the theme to which your production relates.

PRODUCTION REQUIREMENTS: A number of beautiful and historic venues in Genova will be available to the conference for performances; the conference’s Performance Committee will allocate venues to productions which are accepted for inclusion in the programme. To facilitate this it would be helpful if proposals could include the following information, in addition to the title of the play and the name of the group of players:

  • Cast size
  • Staging space required
  • Any particular production desiderata eg different performance levels, indoor or outdoor performance
  • Special effects which might need to be accommodated

Each production will be given once at the conference (in exceptional circumstances twice): all productions will be open to conference delegates; some productions will be open also to the general public of Genova.

FUNDING: Proposers of productions are responsible for funding travel to and from the conference for all those involved in their production, and for meeting production costs.

DEADLINE: The deadline for submitting your production proposal is December 31, 2017.

PLEASE SEND PROPOSALS TO: Dr Tiziano Pacchiarotti:
