"Lessons of Breath" by Anne Tyler is a novel that, through the journey, retraces memories and nostalgia, bringing to light feelings such as pain, boredom, hope.
The same emotions we felt during the lockdown. A suspension of time, a moment of reflection on the true meaning of life.

"Lessons of breath" is the title chosen for the new edition of Avamposti, a theater festival organized by the Teatro delle Donne of Calenzano (Florence), scheduled from 11 to 20 September 2020 in Florence, Calenzano and Sesto Fiorentino.

With Avamposti, the theater leaves the theater and involves parks, libraries and other spaces. Everything takes place in compliance with anti-Covid rules and, to accommodate the widest possible audience, almost all evenings offer two reruns of the show, at 7 pm and 10 pm. No queues and no stress: just book or buy the ticket the presale.

On Friday 11 September, at Villa Vogel in Florence, "The Handmaid's Tale", based on the novel by Margaret Atwood that inspired the television series "The Handmaid's Tale", as well as protest marches of many women around the world: interpreter Viola Graziosi directed by Graziano Piazza. The handmaid asks us about freedom, about what we do with it and about what women's freedom really is. It becomes a symbol, the nightmare of a possible near future, a warning that keeps us on guard.

For a human being, change is a difficult undertaking. And if he is a man, then he can cry out for a miracle! Actress of theater and cinema, Azzurra Martino is the protagonist of “Love me without makeup!”, A text by Andrea Muzzi still staged at Villa Vogel, Saturday 12 September.

On Tuesday 15 September at the Civic Cavea of Calenzano Raffaella Azim in “Creatura di sabbia” from the novel by Tahar Ben Jelloun of the same name, directed by Daniela Ardini.

Also at the Cavea Civica, Wednesday 16 September, Elena Arvigo presents the new text taken from “Quarta Dimensione” by Ghiannis Ritsos, “Poetic soliloquies of the myth: the other heroines”.

From Friday 18 September, the Outpost Festival arrives in its natural location, the Manzoni Theater in Calenzano: "Theory of the perfect number applied to the stories of the socialist utopia" is the show by Antonio Fazzini and Filippo Renda dedicated to the dialogue between a mathematician and an actor.
Cinzia Pietribiasi talks about the relationship between daughter and father in "Father of love, father of mud", Saturday 19 at Manzoni, while on Sunday 20 September the "tapas" version is scheduled - small tastings awaiting the official debut, scheduled for last March and postponed due to the coronavirus emergency - of “The lost ingredient”, with Claudia Della Seta and Sofia Diaz: a woman inside the plot of her life, inside the secrets of the family, including… the recipe for parmesan aubergines.

For the post festival section, the world premiere of "Dalle stelle" (text by Silvia Calamai) is coming in October, from Fri 16 to Sun 18 at the Teatro della Limonaia in Sesto Fiorentino in collaboration with Intercity Festival, and Oscar De Summa in residence with the dramaturgical project “Senza nome” Mon 19 and Mon 26 at the Manzoni Theater.

THE HANDMAID'S TALE - The Handmaid's Tale
Based on the novel by Margaret Atwood
Translation by Camillo Pennati
Directed by Graziano Piazza
With GRAZIOSI VIOLA
FIRST REGIONAL
As part of the Florentine Summer promoted by the Municipality of Florence
Imagine a future in which women are supervised and divided into categories according to the color of their clothes: the Wives are blue; Mars green, domestic; brown the Aunts, overseers; red the Handmaids, the only ones still able to procreate. No one can disobey, on pain of death or deportation. A "new world" that seeks its legitimacy through women and their bodies.
The Handmaid's Tale is a dystopian novel written in 1985 by Canadian Margaret Atwood, which returned to the news for the great success of the television series "The Handmaid's Tale", which inspired the protest marches of many women around the world. A food for thought.

Reading productive study
For a human being, change is a difficult undertaking. If the human being is a man, then one can cry directly to the miracle! Men don't change out of laziness or simply because they like themselves the way they are, even with their flaws. Indeed, above all for their defects. Men are conservative, even the most revolutionary ones.
The show is an introspective monologue that crosses the moods of abandonment with fun; hope, anger and fear. It is a show that thanks to the testimony of the victim, Stefania, photographs a category of people who firmly bind you to suffering, pathological narcissists!

To preserve the family patrimony, assuming the role of head of the family, Mohamed accepts a marriage with his cousin, daughter of his uncle who, according to the Koranic law, would have received the main part of the inheritance.

POETIC SOLILOQUI OF THE MYTH: THE OTHER HEROINES
Taken from "Fourth Dimension" by Ghiannis Ritsos
By and with ELENA ARVIGO
Regional first
The scenario is mythological, but the poet and his individual memory are omnipresent in every verse. Troy, Thebes, Argos are allusive archetypes of the senseless chain of wars, revolutions and fratricides of all times. In the Fourth Dimension the myth is extinguished, it escapes from its frame. Life enters, with its cumbersome fullness. The names are lost in the past: Phaedra, Antigone, Demetra, Elena. Of them only words and statues remain but as long as we remember them, time will keep coming back and we will not be alone. What matters is only the present life, solid, warm, of flesh and blood.

APPLIED PERFECT NUMBER THEORY
TO THE STORIES OF SOCIALIST UTOPIA

That is the impossibility of dialogue
By Filippo Renda
With ANTONIO FAZZINI, FILIPPO RENDA
Production studio of residence
The meeting between two men. They find themselves having to face a public debate but quickly realize that they have absolutely nothing in common. The first is a mathematician, fresh from a doctorate in one of the most prestigious universities in the world, who tries to spread the relationship, in his opinion symbiotic, between art and mathematics. The second is an actor whose family history has led him to meet some of the greatest revolutionary theorists and activists, some of whom have been dead for centuries!

The show tells the story of a relationship. That of a daughter with her father. A true story that is not told but rather crossed. The place where everything happens is Schio, a working-class town in the province of Vicenza. The small and industrious city, which saw the birth and growth of large textile companies such as Lanerossi, in the 1980s was literally submerged by heroin, witnessing with indifference and fear the annihilation of the twenty-thirty-year-old generation of the time. Spectators are summoned to witness an act of love. The only salvation lies in a collective hymn to life.
