In the Basilica of San Francesco, a traveling theater performance that starts with Shakespeare in an attempt to imagine its evolution in the contemporary context.
It’s an extraordinary experience that is based on Shakespeare’s masterpieces, but goes beyond, seeking to explore new possibilities and their evolution in the contemporary context. It’s a journey that delves into the depths of emotions and psychology of Shakespearean characters, offering a fresh perspective and an intimate connection with the audience.
Through brief monologues, the four iconic female characters of Shakespeare – Juliet, Ophelia, Lady Macbeth, and Desdemona – find voice and space to express their inner selves. Each monologue is an exploration of their deepest emotions, desires, doubts, and torments. It’s a total immersion into the consciousness of these tragically fascinating figures, who reveal themselves in all their complexity.
The performance is organized on the occasion of the memorial days for Filippo Bagni and Piero Bruni, victims of the tragic accident that struck the State Archives of Arezzo on September 20, 2018. Two performances are scheduled for the same evening, at 8:00 PM and 9:30 PM.
