There could not be a better time for it. In Italy, as across the rest of Europe, we are seeing far-right extremism gaining support and power all over the country and particularly with young people. With this show we want to make something surprising and captivating that will speak strongly and directly about some urgent topics: sense of community, rules of a group, the identity of the Man and homophobia. 

Theatrically speaking we will try to do something that is not common for the Italian stages. Firstly a large cast, between 10 and 12 people, is essential to depict effectively the internal dynamics of this kind of group (’us against them’ and the impossibility of getting out once you are in). Secondly we would love to have a strong ensemble for a particular type of physical theatre that in Italy is rarely mixed with prose. 

Writing, directing and music composition will be devised together with the whole cast in the rehearsal room.
