LE RAGAZZINE DI MILANO STANNO PERDENDO IL CONTROLLO.
14th October 2018
SOCIETY FEARS THEM. THE END IS BLUE
“We are not girls.
We are silver bullets for your middle-class brains!”
The friendship between Motta and Castracani – two middle-class girls with a shared passion for medical analysis – tells of the loss of control, the confused search for an identity, the recklessness, the challenge to themselves and the world, the investigation of their own bodies, common to many teenagers.
Inspired by Ratigher’s teen drama of the same name, Eleonora Pippo’s work enriches the plot with the experiences of the girls on stage. A parallel narrative made up of short interviews, live songs chosen by the girls themselves and letters addressed to a self from the future reveals the resources of the Post-Millennial Girls, interweaving fiction and reality that reinforce each other.
The theatre project is based on the formation of a temporary local company made up of girls between 13 and 18 years old, who – in the record time of seven days – work together with the director to create an original performance.
The performance, enriched by the installation La fine azzurra (The blue end), by Eleonora Pippo herself, is staged only once with active participation of the audience.
