“It was not a brave gesture. I just did what I felt was right to do, just like any girl would do today: I listened to my heart, and the rest just followed. Today, I recommend young people follow their hearts; it is not difficult. I did it in a Sicily that is very different from today’s; They can do it simply by looking into their hearts.”
In the one-woman show, Story of Franca Viola, an actress questions the best way to tell the story of a “symbol.” The narration proceeds quickly, playing with theatrical genres, interpretative styles, and characters – which are deliberately all crossed with quick and sketchy brush strokes – in a scene that unequivocally evokes the room, inhabited by objects that are symbols of the fight against the violence of women: red shoes, umbrellas, masks, microphones; Objects that carry history into the theater and vice versa.
We are waiting for you!
