La Pelanda – Teatro 2
The last production of Fortebraccio Teatro explore the meta-theatre of Six Characters in Search of an Author by Pirandello resulting in a performance that arrives as far off as the Gravediggers in Shakespeare’s Hamlet. A lone actor on stage, PierGiuseppe di Tanno, as if he were the seventh of the Six Characters in Search of an Author, confined to the words of the text and abandoned to them.
The reclaiming, the urgency, along with the resistance to staging, are the conditions under which Fortebraccio Teatro wants to work. As much as it tries to fix things, contain them, there is the knowledge of the delicacy of so little, of nothing at all.
This is what interests them.
Fortebraccio is a company that has been recognised by the Ministero dei Beni e delle Attività Culturali e del Turismo since 1999. Focused on contemporary experimentation, the re-appropriation of classic texts and the research of original theatrical writing, the group centres around the collaboration of Roberto Latini, Gianluca Misti e Max Mugnai.
