8 | 9 November 2019 "DOG" at the Teatro di Cestello.

Theatrical performance taken from Dog's Heart by MA Bulgakov. Directed by Alessandra Comanducci. Obraz Shipyard Production.

In what was once the very rich Casa Kalabukhov palace, a group of proletarian tenants headed by Svonder, director of the building, settled after the October Revolution. In the same building lives and works, Professor Preobrazhensky, an enlightened doctor, famous throughout Europe for his experiments on rejuvenation thanks to the transplantation of animal sexual glands on men. The cohabitation between the two realities is difficult, but totally eludes control, when, following the last experiment, the stray dog Pallino, is transformed into a human being in all respects.

CANE develops as a path of theatrical investigation that the Cantiere Obraz company has undertaken on Bulgakov's novel "Heart of Dog". In this second version, the text has been opened and revolutionized focusing on the theme of human freedom of choice and whether it is always subordinated to nature or to social rules. The show, in fact, purified of the properly historical context of the Russian Revolution, leads the audience on an immersive journey in which the spectators themselves will be the tenants of the building and the patients of the professor, or witnesses of the birth of a new man (which however is really similar to the old one).
