Progetto Reality. Presentation

by Lorenzo Guerrieri
The stage is littered with cardboard boxes, as before or after a move. Here and there different objects emerge from the boxes. Daria Deflorian and Antonio Taglarini roam between the boxes and objects.
The short performance is a takeoff on Reality, a book by Polish writer Mariusz Szczygieł, who narrates the 748 diaries in which a woman, Janina Turek, noted every minute detail of forty years of her life, translating her experiences into numbers, lists and catalogues.
In rzeczy, as in Reality, there is a powerful consistency with and resemblance to the style of direction, drama and acting used in Rewind.
