PANICALE (Perugia) – Just a few more days and the new season of prose curated by the Teatro Stabile dell’Umbria will also kick off at the Cesare Caporali theater in Panicale.
«We are particularly happy and proud to welcome the new season of prose and dance Tsu, small (six events) and precious – the words of Anna Buso, city councilor for culture – Even our Caporali theater has small dimensions, yet it has always been a important center of cultural production. This edition includes a six-stage journey through nineteenth-, twentieth-century and contemporary literature. There will be food for thought on topical issues such as the condition of old age, women’s emancipation, the pandemic crisis, but with an original, never predictable and even comical look. We then have a special stop with traditional Sufi dance thanks to the Turkish dancer Ziya Azazi. We close with “Raffaello” and the return of the talented Martelli who brings the life of Perugino’s most illustrious pupil to the stage, to also pay homage to our local Renaissance, where the fresco by Pietro Vannucci occupies the place of honour».
The thanks of the municipal administration go to all the realities that, together with the Tsu, made the realization of the bill possible: «The artists, the Caporali theater with the new management of the inter-associative network La lira di Apollo and Sistema museum with the operators of the info point office, where season tickets and individual tickets can be purchased. We wish everyone a wonderful journey.”
It starts on first december with “La madre dei mostri”, a new Tsu production inspired by the stories of Guy de Maupassant, directed and staged by Lorenzo Collalti who, through an unprecedented dramaturgy, investigates and constructs daily life between madness and irony, just like the French writer.
«Through a rewriting of the story of “Le Horla” (a man confesses through a diary that he is possessed by a vampire) – asserts the reista – almost as if they were slips of the tongue, in the crescendo of madness of the protagonist, a series of stories unfold that take life for associations of thought».
Saturday 17th December comes “Future Front” by Margherita Mauro, with Matilde Buzzoni, Antonio De Nitto, Gloria Giacopini and Matilde Vigna. The show stages a collective investigation into the future, where a group of young actors explore new possible scenarios of aging on stage, formulating creative strategies for their future geriatric survival.
Monday 16 January space for the sanza with the Turkish artist Ziya Azazi who interprets the dances of the Sufi tradition in a contemporary key in Dervish. Two works: “Azab” and Dervish in progress”.
Saturday 4th March protagonist of the stage will be Alessandro Benvenuti with “Panico ma rosa”, a journey into the mind of a comedian who, in seeking a new meaning of life in order not to go crazy, mixes dreams and anecdotes, designs baroque comic languages, decides to be reborn to a new life.
Saturday 22nd April it will be the turn of Anna Di Francisca, director of “L’anello forte” by Nuto Revelli, a tribute to the unforgettable women whose testimonies the writer and partisan collected. Poignant and funny stories of abuse and emancipation, collected in a Piedmont that is irreversibly changing.
Thursday 6 May season closing entrusted to Matthias Martelli, accompanied by live music by maestro Castellan, with his “Raphael, the son of the wind”, a compelling and poetic story about a great genius of humanity, Raffaello Sanzio.
