Jacopo Fo Ltd. and the project “Theater so good”
What seemed to be only an idea is now becoming possible with “Theater so good”: having the full approval of all the protagonists of the initiative, there is no doubt about that , but still just an idea, a dream …that is coming true: to involve the theatrical movements and associations of the District of Palma, in Mozambique, in order to spread the good practices that are useful for improving the well-being of the local people, and to do it through the language of the theater.
About thirty people collaborate with Jacopo Fo Ltd. in this project people who, having different roles, cooperate in order to achieve the various points of the project, beginning with their active presence in Mozambique and ending with the phases of creation of the “story” and its successive spread.
