Metamorphosis: the physical transformation of chaos in an organized universe

performance group: Gianni Forte, autor; Stefano Ricci, autor and director; performers: Piersten Leirom e Liliana Laera; Stephane Pisani, musical processing

A two-fold dramaturgic workshop develops from the combination of the ruthless imagery of Shakespeare and Frank Wedekind and, in contrast, the poetic and visionary imagery of ricci/forte. This will follow the outlines of one of the most debated and fascinating plays from early 20th century German, Spring Awakening, and one of the most controversial tragedies by the Bard, Troilus and Cressida. This is a metaphorical reworking of these cruel fairy tales in the context of the new generations of the digital age, who see the world only through a screen. It will highlight a country torn between hope and brutal instincts, where ethics are inevitably reduced to compromises with the fierce dictatorship of an inescapable destiny. This is a place where human relationships, blurred by the obsession with money and appearance, find their dignity in existing in the tenacity that distinguishes them.
In these dark times of the loss of imagination, with painful irony and a Mozart-like impudence, we will tell of the "nocturnal side" of today's reality. A journey into the constantly transforming land of modern mankind's solitude, balanced between an inescapable future and the globalization that knock evermore insistently at our door.
