From a real event, reported on the pages of the newspapers. A death row inmate waits for the day of execution. The state that sentenced him kills by hanging. The inmate is so fat that the hangman's rope wouldn't hold the weight. The execution must be postponed. Those in the text are the words that the prisoner pronounces in the hours of his last wait. Prolonged, dilated waiting (of the obese, even time is hypertrophic). The place of the verbal action could be a cell, but more exactly it is any place before God. If not right in front of it, certainly in His vicinity.
The desire to work with Fabio Mascagni is the spring that pushed me to undertake this adventure.
What interests me in the work is to discover together something we don't already know.
The protagonist of the text is a character who has very specific physical characteristics, but I didn't think it necessary to look for a likelihood with the actor's physicality.
With a small dramaturgical intervention, I thought that a "macabre cabaret" could give us the right distance, as happened through the epic form of the "Brechtian cartels" which, rejecting the naturalistic style, did not "embody" an event but "narrated" it, stimulating the critical conscience and the imagination of the viewer.
