Claustrophobic space_violence_ambiguity_domain_time discontinuity: obscure past/lying present. Pinterian tools to scan the game that erase the untouchable edges of relationships. Memory is a refuge, the Alliance Ark, an operating table to sew up the subjective truth, where lies are normal. Human topographies, parked next to a checkpoint, analyzed under an inhospitable neon lights that show the contemporary weakness. Our devious nature is a frozen crust where we skate in loop and we don’t care that time melts beneath our feet every kind of compactness. Every kind of difference. The semiotic manipulation process of passions is not completed. The dissected death bodies of what we were come to light again. NOTICE: looking for a nylon lawn, even a second hand one, for an homologative definitive burial.

Press reviews

...new generations of theatre companies are facing the 2005 Nobel Prize Pinter; amazing art works are coming out from the ones that are not so closed to hierarchy and ‘respect’ but that are able to find in his plays inedited visions and unused ‘ghosts’. That’s for example ricci/forte. Gianfranco Capitta, Il Manifesto
...ricci/forte words are Pinter’s daughters, amplified through the energy of the bodies. Maria Grazia Gregori, Delteatro.it
...the four actors of pinter’s anatomy are extraordinary for their power and passion: that‘s an exposition, a total revealing. Andrea Porcheddu, Delteatro.it

...supported by short effective monologues or dazzling dialogues (typical of the best Pinter), the sequences of pinter’s anatomy represent portions of real life, especially the emotional one, thanks to the terrific acting of the four interpreters...
Mario Brandolin, Messaggero Veneto

...a burning play that seduces, confuses and gets you totally involve. Alberto Rochira, Il Piccolo
