Insel, Panzetti Ticconi | ph Valerio Figuccio

The collision of the castaway with a desert island is what each of us experiences when we plunge into our inner self and encounter our dark side.

Monologue becomes the only possible form of expression. One stages one's own drama out of narcissistic self-satisfaction, while the others become invisible.
Then, suddenly, something upsets everything: a deep, ancient, archaic voice remodels the ground, warps it and life can pass through the cracks.

Through those crevices comes the possibility of a relationship: a solitary lament becomes collective mobilisation, an intimate cry becomes a rite of passage while the sea accompanies and soothes the wounds of the four performers on stage, who go from being individuals to becoming a community.

Two eccentric and popular young Italian dancers/authors who often live and work abroad, narrate the complex forms of the world without being satisfied with easy interpretations, even when they have been accepted for centuries.
