International Voices Project 2019: Italy Performance

Tuesday, May 14 at 6:30 p.m.
From Italy
A Notebook for Winter and Events Horizon, in collaboration with The Italian & American Playwrights Project and Instituto Italiano Chicago
Written by Armando Pirozzi and Elisa Casseri
Translated by Adriana Rossetto
Directed by John Green and Matt Masino

A Notebook for Winter is a two-actor-piece, which is in three acts and tells the story of an introvert professor of literature who finds a burglar on his way back home. The knife-wielding burglar wants something unexpected from him: it is a question of life or death. During the entire night the two characters talk, exchange ideas, feelings, ask painful questions out of hope and desperation, in a completely new and unexpected atmosphere. They will meet again years later, both affected by that night. Although their personal memory of that night is different, it may have triggered a change in both of them, by offering a further comprehension and awareness of each other. The key idea is based on the power of writing as a way to directly impact reality: the wonder and resilience of poetry is not seen as a literary exercise, but rather as a vibrant force which affects life.

In Events Horizon, Olga is stuck in a studio apartment, which has a wall with many doors and cupboards, a front door which doesn’t open, and no windows. She cannot figure out what has happened. She only knows that she cannot escape. When she tries to open one of the doors on the wall, she immediately comes back from another one and continues to stay there. At some point, however, she realizes that time is messed up and that every time she leaves, she enters a different time of her life.
