EINAR Schwenke's OSTAGE (Kapring)

designed and directed by Dimitri Milopulos with Monica Bauco , Daniele Bonaiuti and Stefano Nigro

world premiere in Italian

Victor, 'lonely and desperate young man' takes refuge in the home of Cecilia, 'young sweet and lonely woman', after robbing a bank: the booty in the bag, the police on his heels. The improvised criminal, awkwardly violent, shows off his funny way of doing hysterical flashes, circus scenes, moments of terror, brushstrokes of romanticism and eroticism and an unsolved maternal conflict at Woody Allen, who takes voice, angry and appalled, a little on the phone and a bit on the megaphone. Cecilia, a lonely and romantic woman in full expectation of great love, after the initial surprise surprise, seems to be taking the savvy and tasteful situation, but unaware of what will soon happen to her. But in the meantime, Cecilia is held hostage by a psycholocal neighbor, victim of the ordinary solitude in which she lives between statistical calculations and dull evenings in front of the TV! In love with her, in order to approach her, he only knows how to embark on an absurd and fatal stunt. To feel free, powerful and alive, they play inside the apartment a crazy and risky game, constantly on the edge of danger while from outside it surrounds them, and then enters, without escape, reality, to recall them to the awareness of their acts and frustrated exclusion that generates them. Witness the television, which thanks to a superficial comeback contest, dictates the final sentence.
