Marcella Vanzo / Gogmagog
19 - 21 January 2015
QUEI 2 = Marcella Vanzo x Gogmagog.
Adam and Eve, reality and fiction, myth and rubbish.
2010: Gogmagog collaborate on Rumors, a performance by Marcella Vanzo for ZoomFestival at Teatro Studio in Scandicci.
2013: Vanzo writes QUEI 2 for them, inspired by Mark Twain’s Diary of Adam and Eve.
Relationship of a couple, ironic, fast, contemporary, on stage.
Ridiculous everyday, Twain and the myth, incisive and funny present.
Eden = 1980s TV: host and diva play a game between Eve’s exuberant femininity and Adam’s hardened reasoning, continually interrupted by passing animals.
Earth = banal, battered, everyday place. Adam, yes, accepts the love in the couple, but he cannot understand the disconcerting presence of a child.
QUEI 2 combines the company’s strong acting skills with the imagination of an artist who investigates the different dimensions of the human being: from the mythical to the social, from the political to the emotional.
QUEI 2 mixes reality and fiction, reflecting a fantastic present and ironising on the idiosyncrasies between male and female, nature and culture, mythical and everyday.
QUEI 2 lasts 50 minutes.
