Largo Spartaco – Roma
12 june 2022
PERFORMANCE | THEATER AND DANCE | NATIONAL PREMIERE
The performance draws inspiration from Fyodor Dostoevsky’s Memoirs from the Underground, written in 1864 in the form of a monologue-confession, and divided into two parts: The Underground and About Wet Snow. “Memoirs from Underground” is perhaps Dostoevsky’s most profound and accomplished work and represents a shocking account of the most despicable side of the human soul. One is impressed by the contemporaneity of a text such as Memoirs from the Underground. A performer “enters and exits” the novel by the Russian writer: acts his words, describes as a reader the work and its plot. A narration, a dramaturgical device always poised between action and text, mixing dance, physical theater, literature and soundscapes.
This performance continues Margine Operativo’s performative and dramaturgical research of connection between text-word, action-movement, and sound-spaces. A path of poetic and thematic elaboration, around some nuclei of contemporaneity.
