Premio Vertigine 2010 Finalist
By Consuelo Battiston, Gianni Farina, Alessandro Miele
With Consuelo Battiston e Alessandro Miele
Direction by Gianni Farina
We wanted to do a show on Judgement Day. We spent time and energies
to figure out in which damned's category we had to insert our main
characters. the sinless “indolent” . Then we found the single
reagent of the plot: a misunderstood revelation that brings to
delirium. That's not all: there was an idea to give substance to our
invisible undertow, and to show the instant reaction of our
anti-heroes in that mystical encounter! Well, it would have been a
masterpiece able to fell humanity's reaction under process, while
awaiting its own judgement. But we needed an elephant, that our
production didn't want to buy. So, we did something else.
“And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they
were naked.” (Genesis 3,7)
Labored under a straight control, the two wretched ones have to face
a Destiny's joke. All the strategies to force it are vain. They have
no rest. They are always under control. What's left to do? Hide,
under your eyes.
Menoventi was founded by Consuelo Battiston, Gianni Farina and
Alessandro Miele in 2005. The company has been awarded with the Rete
Critica Award (2011), the Hystrio-Castel dei Mondi Award and Lo
Straniero Award (2012). Their works include: In Festa,
Invisibilmente, Postilla, Perdere la faccia, L’uomo della sabbia,
Credi ai tuoi occhi, Ascoltate!, Docile.

BARTOLINI / BARONIO
site specific performance from Carmen che non vede l’ora
by and with Tamara Bartolini / Michele Baronio
playwright: Tamara Bartolini
music design: Michele Baronio
Let's say there is a small village in the former Yugoslavia. Let’s
say that there begins our journey. Let's say that the story of
Carmen magically crosses Italy of the '40s, the fabulous '60s, the
fiery ‘70s, up to finally meet us in a small town near to Rome in
front of the sea. Let's say that, from all this, a few years ago the
showCarmen that cannot waitwas born and from it we start once
again to tell a new version, stripped of its scenic dimension, to
open it to new places: Carmen's Tale. The story of a
woman's body that seeks its place in the world, which clashes and
struggles with other bodies, in a deep and vertiginous immersion
into the history of our country. A body, like a story.
Thanks to Carmen M. for her story.
The show Carmen that cannot wait is a production Bartolini/Baronio |

The Roman company is an artistic duo born in 2009 after the sodality
between Tamara Bartolini and Michele Baronio. Their artistic
creations are based on a deep work on individual and collective
biographies, weaving together musical poetry, in a dialogue-concert
between word and music, artists and territory.

Zelda’s Last Waltz
Written and interpreted by Alessandra Crocco e Alessandro Miele
Francis Scott Fitzgerald and Zelda Sayre were the couple which
symbolized the Jazz Age both in its ascent and decline. They
embodied the passion of a young generation whose desire was to fully
enjoy the wealth arose from the economic boom period. But the 1929
Wall Street crash and the emergence of the economic crisis led to
the break-up of their lives, along with those of an entire nation.
Through various excerpts from novels and short stories, the Demons
Project tells the story of the Fitzgeralds in order to track down
the short circuit between the Lost Generation of the Twenties and
the today’s generation in their thirties. Photo

How Time Falls to Pieces / Sunset Edition
Alessandra Crocco and Alessandro Miele lead the spectator into a
couple’s life by evoking various moments. It’s a story that has been
torn to pieces, like a recollection of the whole life, like a dream
that we recall in our mind at our awakening.
“How Time Falls to Pieces” – which debuted last July in an apartment
in Sansepolcro (AR), for 4 spectators only, during the Kilowatt
Festival – is now presented with a new appearance within “Utimi
Alessandra Crocco and Alessandro Miele founded Progetto Demoni in
2012, after writing and performing two pieces inspired by
Dostoevskij’s Demons: the site specific performances Demons –
Fragments and the show A romance ended. Their most recent works
include: Lost generation, on the life and works of Francis Scott
Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda, and How time falls to pieces
(co-production Progetto Demoni - Capotrave/Kilowatt - Infinito srl)
Written and interpreted by Andrea Cosentino
“History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.” (K.
Marx) TELEMOMO’ is the second advent of television. Or the
second decline of an appliance. It’s a kind of autarchic,
interactive, eco-friendly, short supply chain television. The
hilarious unveiling of the poverty of TV language, with all its
baggage of shots and countershots, expressive close-ups and
significant details, mimed by means of the material poverty of a
handcrafted animation theatre. An easel on which the punched frame
of a television set is placed; that’s enough to perform television
dramas, news, documentaries and advertisements. The editing is the
inside-outside of real close-ups and plastic dolls which fidget and
“have a lot of trouble”, TV meat puppets made of Barbies without
legs and, again, wigs, toys, body parts and shreds of things.
Telemomò is also the pulpit from which everyone can
“authoritatively” hurl unlikely policy statements and surrealistic
sociological analysis. Whereas television has made today’s Italy, we
have to use television again to undo it.
Andrea Cosentino is an actor, author, comedian, writer. Among his
shows: “L’asino albino”, “Angelica”, “Primi passi sulla luna”, “Not
here not now”. He has been actor and co-author in the most recent
performances by CapoTrave (Lourdes) and by Roberto Castello
(Trattato di Economia).
