Corps Citoyen (IT/TN)
GLI ALTRI لخرین
26 November h 20.00
27 November h 17.00 and 20.00
An actor alone in a western scene.
Rehearsing, singing, training.
Rehearsing for the role of the hero.
But the role is not written for him.
The Others لخرین is an acid dialogue, a light and ironic work on the perception of the Other than us that moves in a hybrid territory: banal, vulgar and direct images and songs alternate with stories rooted deep in our western mentality and identity.
In a subtle balance between fiction and reality, it exposes the power device underlying the Orientalist representation of the Other, starting from the representation par excellence, stage fiction. An off-screen voice comments, gives instructions, reminds of limits and modalities. The audience is an integral part of the game. Crossing different genres, from cinema to docu-fiction, from classical theatre to advertising, Corps Citoyen reveals colonial paternalism hidden in disguise while reaffirming the right to its presence on stage of a different possible narration.
