I Patom Theatre is the theatre project of two actresses graduated at Accademia Teatro Dimitri (Switzerland): Aude Lorrillard and Vita Malahova who, finding themselves working together in several disciplines, wanted to combine their artistic ideas with their experiences in order to create a theatre group together. Throughout physical expression and music I Patom Theatre aims to develop a unique scenic language tied by the creation of strong images and linked with a fine dramaturgic headline. From out of the works of this company is spawned the desire to share their work to a large audience; every culture and nationality.
