«I saw the first disembarkation in Lampedusa with my father. Many disembarked at the pier, mostly boys and girls. I was speechless».

A show taken from the book by Davide Enia Appunti per un Naufragio (Sellerio publisher) which uses the languages of theatre to deal with the mosaic of this present time.

How to tell the present in the moment of the crisis? This question hides continuous pitfalls. Absolutely, the continuous risk of spectacularizing the tragedy. The work is directed, therefore, towards the search for a continuous dryness, in which words, gestures, notes, rhythms, rhythms, cunto must be essential, indispensable, necessary for the construction of internal movement.

This has determined the performative character of the work on stage, in which one proposes oneself in the precise emotional state that generated everything, immersing oneself in that exact condition of feeling, in a loop that repeats itself, replica after replica, in a continuous return that has no outcome other than its being relived, word after word, gesture after gesture, sound after sound, trauma after trauma, cunto after cunto.
