“In this phase, where the lights struggle to overcome the shadows - explains Gianfranco Pedullà - the theater seems to be one of the few instruments capable of staying in the 'heart of things' to open up to the future, to look beyond the crisis without pretense, without excuses. The theater must, today more than ever, stay within the essential things that concern everyone: the actors and the spectators ”.

THEATER OF ARTS Lastra a Signa (Florence)
2022 SEASON PROGRAM | 2023
(first part - October December 2022)


Friday 7 October 2022 - 9 pm
Petra Magoni and Andrea Dindo
Kurt Weill, German by birth, American by adoption, is the composer who has most marked the history of musical theater, with melodies and characters that have entered the collective imagination, living in songs still interpreted today by artists of the classical, rock, jazz scene. and pop. With him begins the musical journey of the Duo formed by Petra Magoni and Andrea Dindo, extraordinary musicians, who gathered for the occasion for an ambitious and fascinating project, which from Kurt Weill will lead us into the world of musical theater from Germany to America by Cole Porter.
A project in black and white, an upside-down project, which leads us to relive those years through songs with a unique emotional figure, from turning in on oneself to cabaret, in an absolutely special way.

Friday 14 October 2022 - 9 pm
Stefano Santomauro
There is a "Ranking of the Happiest Countries in the World": according to the United Nations, the happiest countries are those of Northern Europe, which, for the millionth consecutive year, take first places. The secret of so much happiness lies in the famous Hygge method: a welfare that works, good health, stable affections, life and healthy food. Ah but then we just have to try! An overwhelming show on the pursuit of happiness: between mauve herbal teas and sweaters with reindeer, tricks to sleep 8 hours a night, organic food and undrinkable centrifuged, Stefano Santomauro gives his best with an exhilarating, light and deep, cynical monologue and sincere. An inadequate story by those who try to reach the goals of happiness without, however, succeeding.
Or maybe yes.
A show that speaks of happiness, in the least happy period of history.

Friday 21 October 2022 - 9 pm
Berardi / Casolari Company
Ubu Award 2018 - Best Actor
“Hamlet take away” is a tragicomic fresco that plays on the paradoxes, oxymorons and contradictions of our time which have always been a source of inspiration for our 'against temporary' theater. The starting point are, once again, words, which have become symbols rather than meanings, labels rather than explanations, in a world where "everything is upside down, upside down, where ethics is a bank, missions are of peace and war it is preventive ".
It is an ironic and bitter reflection that comes from observing and listening to the surrounding reality, which attracts and frightens us.

Friday 4 November 2022 - 9 pm
Theater Invitation
A concert / show to evoke the exciting atmosphere of the Milan of the 60s / 70s and celebrate that group of friends and colleagues consisting mainly of Enzo Jannacci, Giorgio Gaber and Dario Fo. Around them, the artistic characters who characterized that Milanese scene: Nanni Svampa, Ivan della Mea, Fiorenzo Carpi, Giorgio Strehler, Beppe Viola, Alda Merini. Songs, but also small stories, monologues, poems. A kaleidoscope of characters such as Rita, el commissari, Nineta, Cerutti, Armando… that lead us on a walk on the wire between song and literature, between theater and divertissement, between satire and nostalgia.

Friday 11 November 2022 - 9 pm
Silvia Frasson
A monologue of rare intensity and theatrical strength, a heartfelt account of stories that exude energy within which life and death find their place. Silvia Frasson is a splendid interpreter of a series of pages of life. What is impressive is the ability to define with attention and minutia the peculiarities of the individual characters, with a careful writing to support the natural flow of existences on which, like a sharp sword, hangs that component of fatality that has always been merciless metronome of human existence .

Friday 18 November 2022 - 9 pm
Teatro del Carro
Portrait of Teresa between lights and shadows. A "difficult" story that faces and tries to describe "the soul of those who" take into account "the death of their child knowing, perhaps, that they are the cause". The protagonist of the show is Teresa, a woman of 'Ndrangheta: a woman who is the guardian of the traditions and codes of the' family ', ready to guide her when men are in jail, to raise healthy and strong children, capable of taking the place of fathers inside of the clan, to take up arms, to shoot, to do business in Colombia or Amsterdam, to enter the ganglia of power, to carry the family brand around the world.

Friday 25 and Saturday 26 November 2022
Festival of dance and literature - 6th edition
Friday 25 November at 9 pm Compagnia AreaArea "Concepts blurred at the edges"
Saturday 26 November at 5 pm (time to be confirmed) Compagnia AdArte; Naturalis Labor Company; Simona Bucci Company
Moving Stories is a project dedicated to dance, literature and creative processes: dance meets literature, reinterprets it, questions it, explores its objectives and motivations, translates the art of words into a non-verbal language. Prestigious contemporary dance companies take turns on stage with choreographies inspired by literary texts and characters, in a sort of creative dialogue between literature and the art of movement.

Friday 2 December 2022
Bardasci donkeys
The show moves between music, words and historical research around the figure of Luigi Tenco. The story of the life of a romantic and damned singer-songwriter, his glacial gaze, so true as to make him different from the fake and glossy colleagues of the star system of Italian music of the time. Was it a suicide or a murder? Also on stage is the band made up of three musicians who, in addition to playing live, lend themselves to theatrical play, bringing the show to an evocative choral that fully renders the facts that really happened. These are the ingredients of a total show: music, theater and more, to relive the atmosphere of the boom of the 60s, to bring back to light, after more than fifty years from his death, the myth of Luigi Tenco.

Friday 9 December 2022
Daniela Morozzi and Stefano Cocco Cantini
A brilliant monologue at times moving in which Daniela Morozzi, together with the precious music of Stefano Cocco Cantini, makes semi-serious considerations that start from the Bolognese tortellini to slow metabolism, from the birth of a child to the importance of why, from the relationship with fear to praise of tears, from the strength of the encounters, such as the one with the Bekaert workers, to the reconsideration of time as a common good. A fun roundup of "human situations" made up of small and large daily details that belong to each of us.

Friday 16 December 2022
Aldes Theater
Ubu Prize Finalist 2019 - Best dance show
How much has Africa contributed to making us who we are?
Today many cultures are lost and the Western one has become in many ways the universal reference. It is impossible to say whether it is a good or a bad thing or to know if the colonized before the colonization were more or less happy. But often in the colonization process it happens that the conqueror changes irreversibly by coming into contact with the culture of the conquered. Mbira tries to talk about this, a concert for two dancers, two musicians and a director who - using music, dance and words - tries to take stock of the complex relationship between our culture and that of Africa. Choreography and direction by Roberto Castello, one of the founders of contemporary dance in Italy.

Shows start at 9pm (unless otherwise indicated)
