presents the review


An under 35 theater review

Three shows, starting September 17

Parallel to the shows, three workshops will be held

on Dramaturgy, Direction and Character.

While waiting for the new theatrical season to start, the Manzoni Theater in Calenzano begins its theatrical activity with a review of three shows dedicated to the new dramaturgy, written and performed by actors under 35: a theater aimed at a young audience, but not alone, in which ample space is given to innovative themes and languages, close to the new generations.

The review takes the title of INCONTRI. In these two long years of pandemic we have all realized how important and not obvious it is to be able to relate to others in real and not virtual encounters. The three shows offered offer a starting point for reflection on young people, on their difficulty in placing themselves in the world of adults and their need for comparison.

The encounters we make, even accidental, inevitably lead to growth. Each encounter leads us to take new paths, new relationships, which, for better or for worse, give meaning to our lives. This is the fundamental theme of the three shows of the review, conceived by Aldo Allegrini and co-produced by Khora Teatro and Mauri Sturno company.

The review starts with BOLLE DI SAPONE by Lorenzo Collalti, with Grazia Capraro and Daniele Paoloni, from 17 to 19 September. Two shy characters, obsessively shy, live their lives in a surreal way, trapped in an imaginative vision of the everyday. By a chance and unexpected accident of fate, these two small solitudes meet; thus they give life to a light and poetic story, which with subtle irony penetrates into the depths of the alienated soul of contemporary society.

From 24 to 26 September, BOBBY AND AMY by Emily Jenkins will be staged, with Margherita Verricchio and Mauro Lamantia, directed by Silvio Peroni. Two actors play 18 roles, delicately narrating a squalid reality transformed into a dreamlike, poetic and nostalgic landscape: Bobby and Amy are two characters out of the ordinary, marginalized, complicated, sensitive. They look weak but they are not. In their own way, they react to the abuses and challenges that life puts before them.

The review closes with CANAGLIE by Giulia Bartolini, with Giulia Trippetta, Grazia Capraro, Luca Carbone, Francesco Cotroneo, from 1 to 3 October. An Italian family. A mother, three children to raise, a table around which to gather every evening to talk about the day, studies, work, squabbles, the need to make it to the end of the month ... Then a scarlet letter that appears on the threshold, like this , out of nowhere: the suspicion, the doubt, the lies and in the end the revelation of all the secrets (but absolutely all) of a family that is not at all normal, a social experiment of a world turned upside down.
