The aim of the essay is to consider how the Ravenna theatre company ‘Teatro delle Albe’ represents the theme of migrations from Africa to Europe. A brief history of the company will show how the integration of migrants from Senegal into the group responds to directives and needs that are at the heart of the Albe theatre. Teatro delle Albe looks to the ‘other’ not for moral norms or moralistic social utopias, but because theatrical art is enlivened by the relationship with what is the ‘other’. For this reason, the Teatro delle Albe is a pioneer in Italy of a creole scene. This article describes some of the company’s shows. This shows that the issue of migrants is not dealt with in a univocal way: in some shows, the Albe theatre does not stage migrant actors, but deals with the theme of journeys from Africa to Europe; in others they put on the same stage differences in cultures. The essay aims to open up new reflections, beginning with the short account of an artistic and cultural history in whose folds we find the attempt to arrive at a more precise and truthful collaboration, in view of a stage on which integration would not only played but lived.
