The Night of the Labyrinth (La Notte del Labirinto)
Musicians alongside sculptors, painters exhibiting close to installations of video theater, jugglers, actors and storytellers… All this, in short, is to be found within this large urban labyrinth, a stage where every street, every corner is transformed into a living, moving gallery of art. This touring show is a way to interactively explore a city through a series of small exhibitions nestled in various streets and angles that transform the urban space into a large, unexpected and varied stage.
A Ballad of Gentleness (Una Ballatta della Delicatezza)
Through the music and words of English authors of Medieval times, what initially seems to be a simple recital of poetry and music becomes a journey back to the medieval Anglo-Saxon era. Using texts in both mother tongue English and in Italian, the dual purpose of embracing the widest possible target audience and a direct comparison of the two languages in all their sonal and stylistic differences, is achieved.
La Zuffa è Servita (The Soup is Served)
Inspired by the 1700’s Goldonian masterpiece La Famiglia dell’Antiquario, this full-length Commedia dell’Arte play represents a classical example of Italian historical theater from the 1500s. Rich, layered themes within the acts weave a historically accurate story about noble landlords, the academic dullness typical of intellectuals, the world of the church, lovers, and the indiscretion of servants.
Dolor d’Amore (The Sorrow of Love)
An adaptation of Betìa by the 1400s Italian author Ruzante, this full-length play confronts the debate on the nature of love using the classic Commedia dell’Arte element of “teatro jullaresca,” celebrating pesant sensuality as opposed to the canons of platonic and noble scholarly love.
Shaitan is a vision, an Arabic word that literally means “enemy.” A theatrical depiction of the famed story of Judith and Holofernes using vibrant projections contrasted with a spartan set, Shaitan is a story that repeats itself, the siege of a city in which one breathes, at every moment, the threat that lies outside its walls.
Quel Mattino d’Aprile
A true story, this hidden gem of historical political theater presents a detailed narration of one the many attacks upon civilians that occurred during the German occupation in Italy in WWII. Through the presence of a narrator assisted by three actors who play the protagonists, the intricate dynamics, causes and background that led a German platoon to commit the unspeakable killing of sixteen people in Calvi dell’Umbria, Italy begin to take shape.
