cascina. At “La Città del Teatro” in Cascina we look forward, waiting for a restart that should take place in attendance at the end of May. And in anticipation of day “X”, the theater presents a new multimedia installation between theater and podcast. The title is “Briciole di Pollicino”, a project created by Chiara Pistoia e Giulia Paoli, with David Lelli, sound design, le scene di Luigi By Day and the drawings and lights of Maurizio Coroni, produced by the Sipario Toscana Foundation.
A job where children, aged 5 to 13, are the protagonists of a story focused on listening actively to the new generations and giving them the opportunity to express themselves. This is in fact a project that combines the theater with the form of the podcast and challenges the little ones on the great philosophical and social issues, so that they can speak and be heard by adults. The installation was presented yesterday at “La Città del Teatro” in Cascina in the presence of Chiara Pistoia and Giulia Paoli, together with the artistic director, Luca Marengo. «An important work – underlined Pistoia and Paoli – with which we bring the philosophy of theater to the stage. This show represents in fact a point of arrival, but also of restart ». “Briciole di Pollicino” will be presented in June at the Segnali Festival at the Buratto Theater in Milan. An installation connected to the larger “Radio Pollicino-Briciole to find the way” project, between theater and contemporary art, born with the aim of collecting and disseminating the voices of boys and girls told over years of workshops and theatrical activities in schools , thus creating a bridge of communication between the world of childhood and adults. “The installation metaphorically represents – the curators explained – our experience as operators, in a surprising journey into the thoughts of children caught in the wonder of their gaze, thanks to the collective interviews of the boys on important and existential issues”. In short, the desire to restart is great with projects in the presence, as the artistic director explains. “We expect – said Luca Marengo – that all the work done in recent months will finally have an outlet with what makes the theater alive and perhaps the only one: the public”. –
