Mise en espace - world premiere in Italian

Change, mutation, metamorphosis, transformation is the goal of the "journey" that Kari, the middle-aged protagonist, makes in the drama Jasper Halle's ass.
Kari feels trapped in her own life, in her past, a prisoner of a society of which she does not feel a part and for this she wants to escape, to go to another place. But is it really possible? Is there another place to go if we remain the same as before?
We find her lost in the middle of her life, she looks at us, asks for help.
It will be the Voice, the only other character in the comedy, to accept his request and so together they will leave for a long and difficult journey together. To reach a new place, Kari, pressed by the questions of the Voice, goes over confiding her own past and is called to abandon it and move on.
Action is an intertwining of the realistic narrative plane - the story of Kari - that
satirical - a critique of the Norwegian claustrophobic society - and the mystical one e
metaphorical - where the narrative suddenly takes mythological forms.
Kari dreams of escaping, but to do so she will have to change, to let go of her old self, facing an initiatory death. Only then can he arrive in a new place. "And here I am - he will say - On this sunny day of sunshine."
Death infuse is nothing but transformation and fortunately one dies continuously.
