SCHEDULED

PROMETHEUS By Aeschylus

On Tour

January 01, 2020

The man of today wonders about fundamental questions – Will there be a future for human life or is there only a catastrophic prospect before us? What role will science and technology play in this catastrophe, seen today exclusively as the light of the future? What tribute will be paid to progress? The loss of memory and identity? The degradation of values and the inexorable transformation into consumers/consumed? How does today the theme of the relationship between the human and the divine reappear, in such difficult times of intolerance, racism and fundamentalism? Prometheus is the hero of the border, of the mediation between these two worlds, both of them so different. What a terrible thing is the human being. Even more terrible is the world of the gods. A great master said that the ancient texts are like signals coming from luminous stars that have now disappeared. Update these texts and try at all costs to find a direct relationship is like closing our eyes to our contemporaneity. In this moment of loss of values and ideals, of absolute degradation and superficiality, of lack of gods and Titans, of unbridgeable human arrogance, it is absolutely necessary to confront ourselves with the ancient word, to try to decipher the luminous reverberation coming from those stars that have now disappeared, to stop at the edge of the abyss, to wait, to look at the light and to reflect on our future destinies. For a moment. Just for a moment.

"The last night of the Rais" by Yasmina Khadra

Teatro Biondo Palermo - From January 17 to January 26 2020

January 16, 2023

Yasmina Khadra takes us to the heart of the last day lived by Muhammar Gaddafi, "The Brother Guide". These are difficult, desperate hours. It is the last journey of a lonely man, of a corrupt soul, lost in the labyrinth of power. This is a modern tragedy, the tragedy of a man who, page after page, shows us his childhood traumas, his sensitivity, his humanity, his fragility, his fears and his anxieties and then suddenly surprise us with his perversions, his thirst for power, his irremediable desire for self-celebration. Precisely in the unshakable faith in himself and in the conviction of being the chosen, the first, protected by God, Gaddafi, until the last moments, felt untouchable and waited for a miracle. He thought he was the revolutionary, he thought no one would ever betray him. Not even his people.

"Black sea" by Gianni Paris

Teatro Pedrazzoli (Fabbrico - Re) Then on Tour

November 08, 2019

"Black Sea" is not an ordinary show. In this work there are no "characters", there are no "theatrical inventions", nothing "represents" anything.Every day we hear news of shipwrecks in front of the coasts of Libya or in front of our coasts, near Lampedusa, amazed, incredulous, but now irreparably addicted, anesthetized in front of the TV screens of our living rooms. Men, women, children, left to themselves, saved or left to die in the waters of the Mediterranean. These tragic events are daily transformed into political matches, exhibited and exploited by this or that bailer on duty. In this shocking, visionary and non-rhetorical text, Gianni Paris tries to touch the inner life of these men left to themselves. Their candor, their naivety, their expectations emerge in an almost surreal reality. The journey to the Italian coasts becomes a mental, dreamlike journey, a modern tragedy, a close confrontation with the ghosts of each of us.
