Domenico (Mico) Pugliares was born in Sicily but has lived in Milan for the last 20 years. As strange as it might seems he holds a masters degree in Political Science. After dedicating many years to music (he’s been on stage since 1985) he began devoting himself to the theatre, studying acting at Cooperativa Theatre in Milan and improvisation at Teatribù – a theatre and school for improvisation where he is artistic director today. He has been teaching theatrical improvisation techniques and acting around Italy, in Europe and in the USA. As an actor, author and director he takes part in many theatre productions in different theatres like the Piccolo Teatro di Milano. His professional path and inspiration come from merging the tools of improvisation with those of text-based theatre.

Mico Pugliares presents UNDER THE MOONLIGHT

Monday Oct. 8th, 2018 at 7.30 pm

When the night has come … How many situations arise? How many characters? Is it a dream or a nightmare? Poets and singers tell stories of the people of the night. Lovers, dreamers, killers, drunkards, prostitutes and pimps, thieves and policemen, real people and imaginary creatures – we are waiting for your tales to be told, to get to know you and find out how and where you live

“… when the night has come
and the land is dark
and the moon is the only light we’ll see
no, I won’t be afraid
no, I won’t be afraid …”


Stage yourself on stage.

Tuesday Oct. 9th, 2018, 3.30 pm – 6.30 pm

Do you know where to put yourself on stage when there are other players? And when you’re alone? The stage is a space to be occupied physically and this can’t be done randomly. You have to know where to stand, how to relate „your area“ to the “area of others” and the rest of the stage. You’ll discover how to move, how to „be there“ without covering the other actors and find out when it is your turn. You will learn how to explore the space for your characters and emotions and to exist without overpowering the others and try to figure out where the focus of your improvisation lies.
