F-aìda, new production by Mana Chuma Teatro
Performance shortlisted among the finalists to the Premio Tuttoteatro.com Dante Cappelletti 2019.
National premiere on 26 novembre at the
Cinema Teatro Comunale Catanzaro, Calabria
In a basement where pigs were slaughtered, in the darkness of an isolation attenuated only by old opera arias, in the darkness of solitude, in one hour, Rocco-Aìda faces the body of his dead father, in a story that bursts forth like an emergency, breaking dams to tell the unspoken words of an entire life.
With the mechanism and the same necessity of a Greek tragedy, unfolds an archaic tale of fratricidal wars, of grief and handkerchiefs, between families belonging to the same land and earth to which they will return. Because of a hatred that saves nothing and devours everything. Yet, in Rocco-Aìda’s voice, still sparkles a hopeless love for a playmate disguised as an enemy because of a female soul cloistered in a man’s body, without no possible escape.
