PIRANDELLO AND THE AGE OF SILENCE

PREMIERE

Kulttuuritehdas Korjaamo/ Stage Festival 23.8.2009 

DESCRIPTION

Pirandello Project - On the Edge of Silence is a silent mask and puppet theatre performance that takes place in a society that has declared creative activity to be inefficient, dangerous... and illegal.

Teatteri Metamorfoosi presents a visually poetic piece, where the pure magic in the act of imagination turns into a rebellious act, capable of re-appropriating another person's life. For imagination is not an escape from reality, but the tool by which we shape it.

The performance is inspired by the last, unfinished play by Luigi Pirandello I Giganti della Montagna (The Mountain Giants).

Language: Speechless
