A Festival of Plays
Organised in collaboration with Italian Embassy Cultural Centre, four plays of Pippo Delbono, well-known Italian theatre actor and director will be streamed through Vimeo links. Presented by the Emilia Romagna Teatro Fondazione, Italy, each of the plays feature leading actors from theatres in Modena, Cesena, Vignola and Castelfranco Emilia.
The four plays will be presented over the next four weeks and can be accessed through the Vimeo link pasted below. The plays are in Italian with English subtitles
Orchids (Orchidee; 115 min)
Written and Directed by Pippo Delbono
Orchids is a collage of texts and music, musical pieces taken from Pietro Mascagni, Enzo Avitabile, Deep Purple, Miles Davis and Philip Glass, and theatrical verses taken from Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet) and from Chekhov, whose leitmotif is the passion for life. Until the poignant final of The Cherry Orchard.
The play is a tribute to a loved one who is no longer there, a wake for a dying mother also realized through the images (sometimes raw) of the main character’s real agony in the hospital.
As in all his shows, Delbono brings on stage a cast of "real" people, a cast that also includes social marginalists, such as the deaf and dumb Bobò, who lived in an asylum for forty years, and Gianluca, a boy down who masterfully interprets characters full of life, excite the spectators.
