Tuesday 19th October at 6pm presentation of the poetry collection Corpo striato by Riccardo Frolloni (ed. Industria & Letteratura); with the author there will be Stefano Colangelo , professor at the University of Bologna and author of various volumes on contemporary poetry, and the poet and performer Jonathan Rizzo . The striatum is one of the three "nuclei of the base" of the human brain, one of the most primordial, animal-like areas, and controls, among others, the functionality of movements. Thus, in recounting the trauma of her father's death, one encounters the life-movement relationship: from Nilla, who is sick with Parkinson's, to her father immobile in the coffin. Dreams then become places of meeting, rethinking and understanding; family events and village anecdotes trace a chorus of characters that narrate the magical and tragic horizon of the province and of childhood. In the elaboration of mourning, attachment to life and the need to share a human history are rediscovered.

The author talks with Michele Rossi and Filippo Marranci. Readings by Flavia Pezzo. Today, almost all of us live in a condition that is the daughter of the profound transformations of the economic boom, when the “last transhumance” takes place, that is, when producing, buying and consuming, suddenly becomes the necessary perimeter in which to live. The Apennines still bear the deepest scars of those transformations. Forgotten territory, in spite of itself "protected" by a modernity that ran but still has preserved stories to tell. The latest transhumance are testimonies, stories and images like so many breaths, in which an almost lost culture is confronted with a modernity, ours, of which today we have rediscovered all its fragility.

Sunday 24 October at 9pm Behave as a woman. Behave like a woman. Your skirt is too short. Your shirt is too tight. Don't show so much skin. Leave something to the imagination. Don't be so flirtatious. Dress in black. Wear heels. You are not very feminine. ”How many times as women have we had to hear these phrases in our life? Tired of the rituals that patriarchal society imposes on us every day of our lives, Maravillas Barroso and Stefania Ciaccheri decided to create a tragicomic performance that would also inspire a profound reflection on the so-called concept of femininity. The Be a Lady video is the basis for giving a free interpretation and creating a short show; accompanied by a third character, the doll Maria, they developed the project to make the public understand how micro-male chauvinism is still too present in our society. A micro-machismo that becomes a weapon of mass destruction, but that highlighted and staged can take a small step forward to start changing the language, to make us reflect on the effect of those messages and their consequences. Free offer admission. Information and reservations 3891975841.
