Dogma Theatre Company

A small collective with very big ideas

We are a theatre company based in Italy and UK established in 2017

We have expanded our collective since throughout London, Milan, Rome and Apulia. 

We are a group of actors, theatre makers, writers, directors, movement directors, musicians and sound makers. We want to tell stories hoping to find truth, humanity and humour in unexpected places!

Dogma from Ancient Greek means ‘something true

 

OUR MISSION

 Dogma is an ambitious company that makes beautiful and inspirational theatre. We bring together artists from all backgrounds to produce outstanding theatre that inspires, moves and challenges about important and truthful topics. We want to speak about the unspoken. Devising and site specific work are important to us. We strive to inviting the audience into these spaces to bring a real intimacy to our shows.

 

OUR WORK

The company’s first work was “Cabin Fever”, sold out at Camden Fringe 2018, a theatrical sci-fi series experiment. Presented in a reduced version at the Shortlab in Rome, it wins the Best Director award.

We then created some “site-specific works“: “The land of the lost” in the Caves of Putignano on the occasion of the SPARKS 2018 Festival, “A long way down” in a camping tent for 10 people at the Brighton Fringe 2019.

With “La Belva Giudea“, a show that combines cinema and theater, we won the “Best Direction” award at the Shortlab 2018. The show developed was chosen by the Theater of Rome as an event for the 2019 Memorial Day and obtained the patronage of CONI, Boxing Federation and Jewish Community of Rome.

In summer 2020 we created “Deep” a videoart project, award winner at the Paris Film Festival and the Mabig Film Festival. Dance and words meet to tell the story of the 3 chapters: I can’t see, I can’t touch, I can’t breathe.

Our latest project “Feroci”, the result of two artistic residencies at Tempio del Futuro Perduto in Milan, was included in the season at the Franco Parenti Theater, one of the most important theatres in Italy. With a unique combination of prose and physical theater we tell a gay love story that is born in a group of extreme rightists.
