Two men in pajamas, about seventy years old, the light and bewildered comedy that permeates the dialogues between the two Beckettian characters, intent on inexhaustibly leading a curious dialogue sitting on a bench. The two characters talk about themselves and the world, in tight dialogues and more or less sharp jokes. The expectation of the women who distribute soup, fruit, biscuits, aspirin, ravioli, cheese, jam, slices, cherries, dark chocolate, softer pillows, makes the two lunar creatures very human.
We worked trying to respect a dry writing, the stringent rhythm of great theatrical effectiveness. Zinni and Axxo intent on inexhaustibly conducting a curious circular dialogue which, as it proceeds, envelops the world of things in a web of words. Alzheimer's, the disease that prevents us from establishing a connection between things and their name and from bringing reasoning to a conclusion, is the condition that frees speech from its burdensome task and the world from the bridle of speech, perhaps restoring to both autonomy and artistic beauty.
