Teatro Dei Borgia (IT)

The City of Myths is a metropolitan poetic dream. It is a trilogy composed of three stories, Eracle, l’invisibile Filottete dimenticato e Medea per strada, which can be seen individually or in succession.

In these stories Medea, Eracle and Filottete are three heroes of the contemporary world. However, they are not heroes from above, they are not descendants, they are not children of gods. On the contrary, they are heroes of the margins, of the periphery, who speak to us of their real tragedies: prostitution, the fall into poverty and abandonment. Elena Cotugno and Gianpiero Borgia have worked on this trilogy for a long time together with many people: social workers, doctors, health workers and psychologists. They have come a long way with them, until the road began to work on them. The result is a trilogy of performances in which the mythical figures of Eracle, Filottete and Medea are projected into the contemporary world and identified respectively with a separated parent, an incurably ill abandoned person and a foreign prostitute.

The trilogy is a political art action that crosses the city and accompanies spectators to places of marginalization, illuminating corners of the urban landscape through the cone of light of Myth.

ERACLE, L’INVISIBILE by Euripide

A disturbing parallelism between the classical hero, Heracles, divine in his proverbial strength, and a marginalised figure in contemporary society, the homeless. Christian Di Domenico plays the role of a separated parent and brings to the stage the economic, social and psychological hardships that have dragged him into the darkest despair. An immersive performance that, starting from myth and Euripides’ tragedy, comes straight to our days.

Duration 65 mins.
With Christian Di Domenico; Words by Fabrizio Sinisi; Project and direction Gianpiero Alighiero Borgia; Sociological advice Domenico Bizzarro; Production Teatro Dei Borgia; In co-production with Centro Teatrale Bresciano and Teatro Stabile del Friuli Venezia Giulia

FILOTTETE DIMENTICATO by Sofocle

In Sofocle’ tragedy, Ulisse returns after ten years to look for Filottete, left alone on the island of Lemnos after seriously injuring his leg. For the Teatro dei Borgia, the contemporary PhiloFilottetectetes we have to deal with is a sick person suffering from a neurodegenerative disease and left alone in a nursing home. Daniele Nuccetelli gives body and voice to the feelings of someone who, in a situation of great suffering, is left to his own devices, staging a delicate and complex theme that touches on the family realities of today.

Duration 60 mins.
With Daniele Nuccetelli; Words by Fabrizio Sinisi; Project and direction Gianpiero Alighiero Borgia; Clinical advice Laura Bonanni; Production Teatro Dei Borgia; In co-production with Centro Teatrale Bresciano and Teatro Stabile del Friuli Venezia Giulia

MEDEA PER STRADA by Euripide

This is the tragedy of the foreigner, reinterpreted through the strength of the myth of Medea interpreted by Elena Cotugno. The performance tells the story of a woman who escaped from her own country, arrived in Italy and ended up as a prostitute for the love of a man with whom she has two children. As with Medea, hope, love and faith in a better destiny are extinguished in an obsessive despair that culminates in a tragic epilogue.

“The first man who, having fenced in a piece of land, thought to say ‘this is mine’ and found people stupid enough to believe him, was the true founder of civil society. How many crimes, how many wars, how many murders, how much misery and error would mankind have been spared if, tearing out the pegs or filling in the ditch, he had shouted to his fellows: ‘Beware of listening to this impostor! If you forget that the fruits belong to everyone and the earth belongs to no one, you are lost!'” (J.J. Rousseau , Origin of Inequality, 1754)

Ti voglio un bene pubblico is an urban game that reflects on dividing infrastructures such as gates, walls, fences.  So much of what surrounds us is made up of walls and fences; understanding their meaning, from time to time, is a necessary civic practice. It is significant to note that the article of the civil code that regulates the construction of fences on land to define private property is called ‘ius escludendi alios’: to determine one’s own by excluding the other. When does a wall stop protecting and start dividing, segregating and excluding? And when a public space is fenced off and access to it is restricted, how much of that public space remains? When a wall is put up, how much of what is behind it can we not know?

A project by Elisabetta Consonni for BASE Milano in collaboration with and ZONA K.

Elisabetta Consonni received a writing grant from IN SITU, the European platform for artistic creation in public space, in the framework of the (UN)COMMON SPACES project, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.

   

Elisabetta Consonni choreographs everything, human and inhuman beings, mobile and immobile objects, maps, interstices and spatial holiday groups. She weaves networks of relationships, subtle and strong, like sugar glass.Graduated in Communication with a final thesis on the social construction of the body in dance and graduated from The Place-London, Elisabetta Consonni then deepened her research in performing art living in Holland (2004-2009) and Poland (2013-2015). Her works aim to expand the practice of choreography by looking for performative devices to incorporate social dynamics and issues. Her activism in the social and civic sphere, takes the artistic form of a research process (documented in ergonomicaproject.wordpress.com) that since 2013 investigates the use and social meaning of public space and the declination of choreographic skills in community practices.

Che suono ha un quadro? Come si muove un’immagine? Sai ballare come un colore?

A Sottosopra niente è come sembra: qui ci sono opere d’arte da guardare e… da ascoltare! Trasformati anche tu in un’opera d’arte, trova il ritmo e le parole…scoprirai una storia ogni volta diversa.

Attraverso suggestioni visive, i bambini saranno stimolati a esplorare lo spazio, il ritmo, il suono, sperimenteranno la propria voce e l’espressività del gesto e lavoreranno su coppie di opposti: lento e veloce, piano e forte, sotto e sopra, lontano e vicino.

Un percorso di avvicinamento al TEATRO, giocando con l’ARTE e il MOVIMENTO CREATIVO.

Al termine del percorso annuale è prevista una restituzione aperta a un pubblico di genitori e amici per far conoscere anche a loro il mondo di Sottosopra.
