"A memorable show that should absolutely not be missed....The black satirical tone to which Martinelli has long accustomed us is coloured by the Fratelli Mancuso's music of land and the faraway, and by Renda’s intensity, taut with a note of pain, of pietas, that move and wound. The show leaves us astonished, indignant and not only: it digs beneath indifference, carving out faces, stories and sufferings that continue to live within us for days." – Corriere della Sera-Bologna
Supported by Amnesty International and lionized by Italian critics, this dark, intense melologue (short work for voice and music) protests the indifference of Fortress Europe to the everyday tragedy of refugees from Africa, who have perished for years in the Strait of Sicily on fruitless sea voyages to escape massacres and starvation in their homelands.
Teatro delle Albe is one of the most important theatre companies on the Italian and international scene. Its prizes include 14 Ubu Prizes (the "Oscars" of Italian theater), the award by Lo straniero dedicated to the memory of Carmelo Bene, the judges' prize at the International Fadjr Festival of Teheran, two "Golden Laurels" from the Mess International Festival in Sarajevo and the career achievement prize from the festival Journées Théâtrales de Carthage in Tunis.
Performed by actor Alessandro Renda and multi-instrumentalists Enzo and Lorenzo Mancuso. Written by Marco Martinelli based on true stories collected and conceived by Martinelli and Ermanna Montanari. In Italian with English surtitles. Translation by Thomas Simpson.
Presented by La MaMa E.T.C. in association with Teatro delle Albe, Ravenna Festival, Regione Siciliana, Circuito Epicarmo, Sensi Contemporanei in collaboration with Teatro Italiano Network powered by KIT-Kairos Italy Theater.
