Vous êtes pleine de désespoir

Teatro delle Moire + Alessandro Bedosti


LENZ TEATRO – EST HALL < 22 June h 9.00 p.m.
durata: 40′

<emOh, lonely death on lonely life!
Oh, now I feel my topmost greatness lies in my topmost grief […].
Towards thee I roll, thou all-destroying but unconquering whale;
to the last I grapple with thee;
from hell’s heart I stab at thee;
for hate’s sake I spit my last breath at thee.
(Melville, Moby Dick)

Someone who either chose or just happened to look at the world from a different perspective, someone urged to constantly recreate themselves and the surrounding reality, can need a time when to delve into the reasons of this diversity, an isolated and inexplicable time when to work on a re-orientation exercise involving them completely and offering the comforting company of good friends. Even starting from an exotic and fanciful theme such as the myth of the siren. That’s all. VOUS ÊTES PLEINE DE DÉSESPOIR is a cohabitation and reflection exercise on one of the many myths of our Western culture, proposing an ambiguous and complex approach to the issues of seduction, sacrifice and femininity. The siren we have imagined has nothing to do with the optimism of some attitudes or images of contemporary society. Our siren is a creature discarded, fallen, failed, fished out of all too domestic sea depths. It is a dark and unrecognisable mass, an immobile and silent amphibian body emanating a dull and obstinate despair, as if it were the invincible and sorrowful chant of a deity expired and yet still attractive, tame and full of mystery.
