New Zealand

Bert van Dijk, actor, teacher and director, has created Pantheatre Poneke in Wellington. He worked with Pantheatre in Europe, in The Alchemical Theatre project, Palermo, 1989; and in Nero, in London in 1991. Emigrating to New Zealand in 1992, he invited Enrique in '95 to direct Xenophoria - an exhilarating solo performance integrating both biographical and historical material: when Tasman 'discovered' Aotearoa, his Dutch sailors and the Maori, who turned up to greet them, misunderstood each others' signals to such a degree that they massacred each other! Bert and Pantheatre Poneke have since created various performances, most recently: The Butterfly's Evil Spell, a sensual, poetical feast, with 8 mainly Polynesian actor-dancers. Bert gives regular "choreographic theatre" workshops in New Zealand and in Australia. Currently he is running a 2-year trainings program in self-devised theatre and extended voice work.

Milano

After 5 years of regular teaching, projects and performances directed by Enrique Pardo and Linda Wise in Milano, 2 companies now exist affiliated to Pantheatre: ESTIA directed by Michela Capato Sartore, who originated the projects in Milano and produced Mozziconi in 1996 - a piece based on the work of the Milano poetess, Alda Merini; and MIMANDIROSE Ensemble, a company of actresses led by Giovanna Lue, who created Jason and Medea: Postmortem, in November, 1998.
