Claudia Donzelli graduated in Foreign Languages and Literatures at the State University in Milan (Università degli Studi, 2002), with a thesis in History of the English Theatre on director Katie Mitchell, prepared in part at the National Theatre in London.
She studied acting with Tatiana Olear of St. Petersburg’s Malij Drama Teatr, and in workshops by open competition of the Biennale di Venezia with Thomas Ostermeier of Berlin Schaubühne, of the National Academy of Dramatic Art Silvio D’Amico, of the Piccolo Teatro in Milan, and of Mario Martone with whom she worked among others.
She published the following studies about theatre and performance:
- National Theatre - “Il Gabbiano” di Katie Mitchell e Martin Crimp (N.T.-“The Seagull” by K.M. and M.C.), in “Ariel”, 2, Bulzoni ed., 2008, pp. 39-58, winner of the Prize for Poetry and Literature “Nuove Lettere” of the Istituto Italiano di Cultura in Naples;
- Katie Mitchell: un Teatro con delle Responsabilità (K.M.: a Theatre with Responsibilities), in “Tess”, 4, CUEM bookshops, Università degli Studi, Milan, 2004, pp. 141-170.
In 2014 she started to present some moments of study of a project of hers about “the betrayed generation” and forced cohabitation, then opening the question to living together in its manifold aspects, at: IX European Independent Film Festival (Paris, 2014), Festival Inventaria (Rome, 2014), IT Festival and Open IT residencies programme (Expo in Città, Milan, 2015). In 2015 she was selected for Arts’R’Public, an international project for Arts in Public Spaces co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme, where she is taking her research forward.
