From the Sicilian director Emma Dante, comes to the Lliure one of the successes of the last Avignon festival. A co-production by the Piccolo Teatro in Milan and the Compagnia Sud Costa Occidentale on motherhood, the birth of identity and gender violence. A contemporary fable with sweetness and brutality, humour and solemnity, and a tribute to women and mothers.
Three hookers and a handicapped kid live in a dirty, miserable room. During the day, women make shawls, and at sunset, they offer their bodies at the entrance of the house. The boy, Arturo, is hyperactive. Every night, at the same time, he looks out the window to watch the band pass by and dreams of playing the bass drum. His mother, Lucia, always had the radio on. It was a house full of music and Lucia was dazzled by the men, especially by a carpenter who visits her every Thursday. He owned a sawmill. He made a lot of money but wore a wool cap and broken gloves. They called him Geppetto. And to Lucia, he hit he. Arturo was born and his mother died in postpartum Now, despite living in the hell of a terrible decadence, Anna, Nuzza and Bettina raise him as if he were their child. Arthur, the piece of wood, taken care of by three mothers, thus becomes a child.
