The artistic core of Stalker Teatro have worked together since setting up the ‘Political Collective’ at Turin Academy of Fine Arts in 1975, the heyday of Italy’s post-68 cultural and political uproar. This has left an enduring mark on the company’s work which is characterized by a strong commitment to artistic experimentation within socially sensitive or challenging situations.

The founding members of Stalker Teatro were involved with Turin City Council’s ground-breaking ‘cultural animation’ projects in the late 70s and helped set-up Turin’s first professionally run youth theater in 1976. In 1981 they started a residency in Italy’s largest psychiatric clinic in Grugliasco which led to the formal foundation of Stalker Teatro in 1986, inspired by the film "Stalker" by the russian filmmaker Andrej Tarkovskij.

In the 1990s, during a five-year residency at Cittadellarte, Stalker Teatro has developed important projects with Michelangelo Pistoletto in Italy and Europe at festivals, theaters, universities and prestigious museums of contemporary art.

Using a distinctive style developed from site-specific events, performance art and participatory theatre, from the 2010s Stalker Teatro have performed throughout all major locations and festivals in Europe and beyond: Spain, France, Poland, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, Portugal, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, England, Scotland, Israel, Cyprus, Lithuania, Russia, South Korea, China, Hong Kong.
