OHT [Office for a Human Theatre] is the research studio of theatre-maker and curator Filippo Andreatta. OHT is based in Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol and, for over ten years, has been working inside and outside the Alpine and theatrical borders, developing transdisciplinary projects that move between theatre and visual arts.
The focus of the research is the relationship between theatre and landscape through a non-anthropocentric approach, an approach capable of shaking the centre and margins of the stage in order to redefine new positions and mappings, in amovement that asks the human figure to continuously renegotiate its centrality. Art practice is declined in different forms and languages that are always in close relationship with the gaze and the body of the spectator, emphasizing that dimension of contemporary culture that sees art as the result of the relationship between work and audience, surrounded by the territory that generates it.
OHT has achieved national and international collaborations such as La Serre Arts Vivants (CA), la Biennale di Venezia (IT), Fondazione Haydn (IT), NYC Artists’ Salon (USA), Romaeuropa festival (IT), Triennale Teatro Milano (IT), the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation (USA), Whitechapel Gallery Londra (UK), Fondazione I Teatri di Reggio Emilia (IT), TPE Teatro Piemonte Europa (IT), OFFTA festival, Montréal (CA), far° festival – Nyon (CH).
OHT has been honoured with awards for artistic excellence, including Nuove Sensibilità for young theatre directors (2008), Movin’Up award for young artists (2016 and 2017), OPER.A 20.21 Fringe (2017) and nominated for Best Set-Design at UBU prize (2018).
Centrale Fies has often been a partner in various projects; for the two-year period 2021-22, OHT was the first associate artist of the CSC S.Chiara in Trento.
