The oral tradition of fairy tales is lost in the mists of time and the fascination of those stories continues to seduce the imagination of writers. "Cruel Stories. The spirit of the Tuscan novellas, today "is the show based on texts by Marco Vichi, Enzo Fileno Carabba, Anna Maria Falchi and Gianni Garamanti, scheduled for Friday 11 October at the Fornace Agresti in Impruneta (9.15 pm), just outside Florence , within the millenary Fiera di San Luca organized by the Municipality of Impruneta.
On stage Lorenzo Degl'Innocenti, accompanied by the actor and pianist Aldo Gentileschi who plays his wonderful music rigorously live.
The authors maintained the logic of the original fairy tale and created something modern, using a language that is the slang of the young people of our times. The themes have been made much more current and social: Marco Vichi transforms "The murderer without hands" into "Disobedient", the story of a grandmother to her niece about her terrible life experiences lived in the revolts of the 60s, the struggle for the emancipation, violence and dramatic difficulties of women.
Enzo Fileno Carabba reworks the famous Tuscan fairy tale "Bellinda and the monster" and turns it into "Beauty in a box" with characters fighting more from within their thoughts than against real enemies: obsessions, compulsions, panic, anxieties of living today.
Anna Maria Falchi tackles the surreal themes of the "Apple Girl" and "Melina" is born, with a new caustic and ironic style that tells about sexual maturity and the acceptance of a new self.
Gianni Garamanti draws inspiration from "Dodicino" to create "The colors of the sunset" in which we talk about migrants and intolerance that often leads to violence towards those who try their best to integrate into our community.
Modern for writing and contemporary for their contents, these stories keep the enchantment of a world of inexhaustible imagination and, just like the stories of the past, are aimed at an audience of all ages.
The narrative theater show "Cruel Stories - The spirit of the Tuscan novellas, today" went on stage in the matinee for primary and secondary schools, receiving great appreciation for the themes treated in such an original way and the message transmitted to an audience of young people and very young.
