C.T GENESI POETICHE RADICI E FUTURO
To revisit the classics of theatre in order to address current issues and stimulate reflection on the future. This is the goal of the theatre company C.T. Genesi Poetiche, founded in 2016 by Gianluca Paolisso and Daria Contento. “Our theatre is a fusion of languages that merges research and experimentation. It moves in a dream-like, allusive dimension, yet without spilling over into the abstract. Within it are performance, music and dance”, states Gianluca. A graduate of the Quirino Theatre - Vittorio Gassman International Academy of Dramatic Arts, Paolisso is responsible for directing the shows, which are all original works, although their starting point are masterworks of classical theatre. In Requiem for Medea, the protagonist’s soul returns to retell its story - having lived it - in a monologue that constitutes a final prayer for herself before falling into eternal silence. “Euripides’ tragedy is enriched with contemporary themes”, explains Andrea, “such as emigration, human trafficking, the thirst for power and the obsessive quest for wealth”. Hamletown, is a rewriting of Shakespeare’s Hamlet which sees the world on the brink of the abyss. “The city around which everything revolves is a kind of merry-go-round fed by tyranny, lies and fake relationships. The love between Hamlet and Ophelia threatens the mechanism of the whole thing”. The latest production from Genesi Poetiche is Anticotestamento (Ancienttestament), a work centred on war and divided into three parts: the first taken from the Book of Judith, the second from the Song of Songs and the third from the Prophets. The young people of Genesi Poetiche have plenty of plans for the future: “We’d like to bring fairy tales to the stage. Still in a modern form. Still making connections between roots, present and future”.
