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.

Despite the simplicity of its central concepts, evolution has a long history of misunderstandings and despite its lack of moral or prescriptive content, evolution has been used to justify social policies that range from the admirable to the appalling.
