Where are the women?

monologue by Michela Murgia

sound dramaturgy performed live by Francesco Medda Arrogalla

If the aliens arrived tomorrow and tried to get an idea of the human race by looking at the places of public representation, they would probably think that a mysterious virus has affected all the female sexes in Italy, making them mute or unable to understand and want.

The government, the television debates and the front pages of the newspapers are full of male interventions. Yet women are not a sociocultural sub-category but more than half of the human race.

After performing on stage the Nobel Prize winner Grazia Deledda in the show Almost Grace , Michela Murgia, one of the most engaged in civil battles, brings to the theater for the first time her point of view on the 'women's issue' in the show Where are the women ? , a lucid monologue that surpasses forever the narrow borders of the pink quotas.


«Being democratic is a huge effort. It means dealing with complexity, providing as many people as possible with the tools to decode and interpret the present, to guarantee spaces and ways of participation for anyone who wants to use them to improve being together. Moreover, not everyone is interested in being democratic. To tell the truth, if we look at today's Italy, it seems that it no longer interests anyone, much less politics. So why do we continue to waste time with democracy when we can take a quicker and safer shortcut? Is not fascism a proven system that guarantees a better management of the State, less expensive, faster and more efficient? "By giving proof of an incredible dialectic capacity, Michela Murgia wisely uses provocation, paradox and irony to invite us to raise the guard against the heavy relics of the past that pollute the present. And he puts us in front of a mirror, forcing us to look into the eyes of the darkest part that dwells in each of us.

Tickets are sold out on both dates.
