Divano Occidentale Orientale The theater group Divano Occidentale Orientale was born in January 2010 by Giuseppe L. Bonifati (Italy) & Monserrat Montero Cole (Costa Rica). The artistic project of the group starts from the South (Italy) and South of the World (Costa Rica) and especially from the will to build and produce art through a deep research and compare it with the different generations. A wide-ranging project that lives inside and outside Italy, in a continuous journey of contamination of its works with the “other”, across national borders.
