What is Theatre of the
7 Directions?

Theatre of the 7 Directions is a path of self-discovery that uses the art of performance to reconnect us to Nature and to regain our sense of belonging.


About Laura Pasetti

Laura Pasetti is a theatre director, playwright and acting coach. She graduated with Giorgio Strehler at Piccolo Teatro di Milano – National Theatre of Italy in 1990.  She has always considered theatre a mission more than a profession and seen herself as “an artist on a quest”. Despite a very successful acting career she never stopped searching and training to enrich her knowledge and understanding of humanity. In 2005, after a pivotal encounter with Russian pedagogue Anatolji Vassilev, she founded Charioteer Theatre in Scotland. She taught at the Piccolo Teatro of Milan Acting school for 10 years before deciding to focus on the development of her own methodology. Since 2016 she has been combining theatre and ecology; using theatre as an instrument to reconnect humans to the environment and re-develop their sense of belonging. In 2021 she began her studies in Engaged Ecology at Schumacher College/Plymouth University. She lives in Scotland, in the Findhorn Ecovillage Community.
