• RE LEAR

    Prod. 2013. "Queste recenti eclissi di sole e luna sebbene la scienza possa farle apparire razionali, tuttavia la natura ne vede gli effetti: l'amore si raffredda, l'amicizia si interrompe, i fratelli si dividono. Questo mio farabutto rientra nella predizione: il figlio contro il padre. Il Re abbandona il suo cammino naturale: e abbiamo il padre contro il figlio.".

  • Prometheus in Blues

    During the dictatorship of the colonels in Greece, Alexander is arrested. In his last 5 minutes before his execution, he tells us about Prometheus, who has donated the fire to the men. In its deliriums, Alexander 'enbodies' the mythical personage, speaking its same language, the ancient Greek. He tells about the myth in first person, in parallel with its experience of resistance, in the background of ancient and recent musics that recall the deep sense of the Blues of the origins.
