On the stage the word becomes flesh

An interview with Gabriele Lavia

by Giovanni Greco

The meeting with Gabriele Lavia, one of the great masters of Italian teatro di regia (the theatre of directors), became an opportunity to discuss the translation of theatrical texts in the widest possible sense, but also to exchange views on a perception of theatre and a vision of the world which always and in any case considers the live moment on stage as the only possible incarnation of a literary text.
