GIORGIO STREHLER

“….io so e non so perché lo faccio il teatro ma so che devo farlo, che devo e voglio farlo facendo entrare nel teatro tutto me stesso, uomo politico e no, civile e no, ideologo, poeta, musicista, attore, pagliaccio, amante, critico, me insomma, con quello che sono e penso di essere e quello che penso e credo sia vita. Poco so, ma quel poco lo dico ….”

DANTE DALBUONO

L’Arte la chiama e lei va. Il Problema e’ acchiapparla! Ora e’ a Melbourne ma puo’ darsi che quando finite di leggere queste righe sia gia’ in viaggio verso L.A.. Se fossimo al tempo della Compagnia dei Gelosi della Commedia dell’Arte l’avreste trovata nel carrozzone che attraversava l’Europa, ora invece usa l’aereo, ma la sua vita come la loro la dedica a far bene la professione dell’attore.
