Muta Imago is a theatre company and an artistical research project.
Born in 2006, now it lives between Rome and Bruxelles
It is guided by Claudia Sorace and Riccardo Fazi, but it is made by all the people that are every time involved in the realization of the works.
It is constantly looking for shapes and stories that put in relationship the sphere of imagination with that of the present reality: human, social and political. It creates shows, performances, installations, where space is that of relationship and conflict between human being and its time.
