Five very passionate women produce an ironic, sharp and bright black comedy to talk about domestic violence and "screamed silence".
InScena with Irene travels all over New York City: today we meet with the amazing cast and crew of Taddrarite at the Museum of Natural History.
AccuraTeatro, created and directed by Luana Rondinelli with the collaboration of Silvia Bello and Claudia Gusmano, was born in 2011, it is an all-Sicilian and all-female company based on the idea of collaboration with other Sicilian artists, primarily, or those who have experience with and a profound love for Sicily. In
April 2015 they produced a showcase of new plays, dedicated to author Luana Rondinelli, at the Argot Theater in Rome. Rather than a theatre company, it looks like a big family of sisters, like the three characters of the show. From the actresses, Claudia and Anna Clara Giampino, to Silvia and Laura Palmeri, assistant and second assistant director, to the documentarist, Sandra Dolani, every member of the group is an indispensable part of this passionate and still impeccable machine.
Taddrarite, or Bats in english, is about one single night in which the untold must be unveiled. According to the old Sicilian tradition, the three sisters are having a wake for their youngest sibling's dead husband. The thin layers of silence, decency, and lies between them are torn apart by a vortex of confessions and an explosion of emotions. Using sicilian dialect full of sharp and ironic dialogues, their dramatic vision of life is revealed, grotesque and cheerful. They find the courage to face the brutality they never dared to confess.
In this coral and passionate chat with the women of AccuraTeatro it clearly emerges that this very Sicilian and very Made in Italy original play spaeks to all the women, all over the world, still prisoners in their own homes.
Don't miss it.
