Life can hold wonderful surprises for anyone. Marbjena Imeraj knows it well and decides to get on a boat and leave theAlbania to reach Italy, in search of one’s happiness. A journey made with difficulty and punctuated by more or less dramatic events, which Marbjena has never let herself down. She has overcome violence and abuse, changed her life and affirmed herself by coming out to a Muslim family.
The actress decided to tell her story to theater: Imeraj debuts in the national premiere at the Teatro Lo Spazio from 12 to 14 May at 20.00 with “Albania – Italia Solo Andata”, a tragi-comic biographical monologue that tells its true and at times incredible story. “Albania – Italy Only Andata” is a play centered on the stubborn search for freedom, produced by the Maeli Cultural Association – Theater Research, directed by Melania Giglio, with set photos by Azzurra Primavera, while sets and costumes are by Fabiana Di Marco and Giovanna Stinga.
«The life of this young Albanian woman – says the director Giglio – speaks of love. And of faith. Faith in art, faith in oneself, faith in one’s ability to rise up and resist. Faith in one’s ability to love. Faith in the ability of every human being to transform their pain into something greater, more luminous. This is why I am convinced that the story of Marbjena speaks to all of us ». “Albania – Italy Only Andata”, is the second show chosen by the artistic director Manuel Paruccini for the restart of the theater in Via Locri.
