First appointment of the year with L’Altro Teatro at Camploy. On Tuesday 17 January at 20.45 “Europeana. Brief history of the twentieth century”, or Ouředník’s twentieth century interpreted by Lino Guanciale, a vortex of contradictions that overwhelms the audience.
The show directed and interpreted by Lino Guanciale, a well-known and beloved face of Italian theater and television, is based on the book of the same name by the writer Patrik Ouředník, born in Prague and Parisian by adoption. The text is a succession of flashes from twentieth-century European history that summarizes a century full of enthusiasm, tragedies, leaps, brutality, sarcasm, passions and wars. As if he were a reporter from another planet or from the future, who came to collect shreds of civilization European in the most contradictory of its centuries, the Prague born Patrik Ourednik crosses the twentieth century with his Europeana, passing with ease from the use of gas in the trenches of the Great War to the invention of the bra, from the Normandy landings to the appearance of refrigerators and hair dryers. The result is a tale of our recent past, terrible and funny at the same time, incredible and simple, where exceptionality and frivolity all find their place. Lino Guanciale takes the writer’s torrent of episodes and stories and transforms them in a big breath, into a sentence as long as a show, where one passes in one fell swoop from tragedy to farce and vice versa. The staging follows the line of the novel, faithfully restoring its soul in a vortex of contradictions through data and dates, tragedies of all kinds, scientific progress and inventions that have changed our lives. Dialogue with him Marko Hatlak, his double in music, which like an accordion tightrope walker travels in the universe of limitless sounds and offers an intelligent and amused musical counterpoint, made up of other fragments that recall further stories, in a close exchange between acting and music.
A show that is at the same time reading, monologue and concert and tells the other side of Europe, the double bottom of history, within a sequence of events that do not happen in a linear way, but intersect: things that happened at the same time, jumps back and forth, suddenly, throughout the century, which is thus retraced several times, making the same years re-read from different points of view. On the day of the show at 18.30 Lino Guanciale will meet the audience at the Camploy Theater.Tickets
