Parkin’son (60’)  

 

The D’Annas, father and son explore their relationship on stage: a collection of personal events, through the skin lines and the bodies connected through blood. 

 

The project was born from the desire of telling a story using the "limit" as an opportunity, illuminating moments and events, which from the perspective of a stranger might appear insignificant ∙ but these are the facts that make the existence memorable. 

Concept and direction: Giulio D’Anna 

Performance: Giulio e Stefano D’Anna

Faust 

 

Stephanos Droussiotis work is a liberal adaptation of J.W. Goethe’s tragedy.  

In an age where the existence of God has been greatly questioned or deemed irrelevant by many, Faust can be examined through a different scope. Effectively, Faust is in constant fight with neither Devil nor God, but ultimately with his own self. 

 

Faust is a charming and complex character. He ultimately chooses life over suicide and through trading his soul to the Devil he secures a real taste of life: love, the act of giving and receiving, betrayal, knowledge and isolation are among the many life traits he gets to experience.
