T.E.A. Teatro Educativa Animazione company
is born from the union of Chiara Falcone’s work, puppeteer, director and actress, with Marco Melia’s, educator and puppeteer.

Chiara Falcone founds in 2007 “Chiara Falcone’s Theatre Of Puppets”, a theatrical experiment that joins the Italian tradition of the Sicilian pupi with other animation techniques, bringing on stage classics of the theatrical literature from Shakespeare to Goldoni.

From 2009 Marco Melia brings into the company the language of puppets with which he sets up a reduction of the Furious Orlando’s cycle, originating from the classical repertoire itself of the “Opra dei pupi”. Our research continues today with projects of contamination between traditional animation techniques, dance theatre and music, in an attempt to present the language of puppets in contemporary terms so as to bring this fascinating Art to a public of children and adults as well.

Puppets are entirely handmade and built by our company according to traditional artisan rules.
Our company is also involved in setting up educational paths related to theatre and puppetry for various age groups.
