Motus asks the public of their show The Tempest to bring a blanket as a gift.
What is the first refuge after a hurricane, a shipwreck or another exceptional event? A blanket. All of us have old blankets at home, there are cheap ones you can buy in markets and associations for assistance to migrants and homeless always need them. One of these Associations will receive the blankets donated by the public after the show. The public will also contribute personally to the staging.
It is an invitation, in total respect of the freedom to accept or reject this request.
Motus, one of the most famous Italian companies abroad, founded by Enrico Casagrande and Daniela Nicolò in '91 along with musicians, artists and sculptors with the intent of expanding the theatrical experience, have chosen to develop their shows differently depending on the places that host them, with the intent to opening them up. To do this they created the MucchioMisto Workshop, "o atelier nomads, who follow and nourish the entire work on Nella Tempesta, launched in 2011 and which will be completed in 2068". The MucchioMisto Workshops which will take place in Venice is Storm Chaser and refers to those obsessed with that meteorology from whom it takes its cue, starting from the actual instructions that are given regarding how to perform the job of "storm chasers". "On the other hand it's a storm, albeit it a metaphorical one, that we must face. These amusing instructions will be transposed into the realm of playwriting to deal with 'Shakespearean tempest, and to regulate participation in the show itself, which though it has already debuted, we want to keep open to influences and 'contagions' ... Let us remember that in the Shakespearean island, the tempest and the drift end up being, in essence, the bearers of real renewal ... when no man was his own. What is put onstage, therefore, is not a world that is ending, but one that begins. Of course, one who chases storms, must avoid surveillance and build security systems and adequate camouflage... He must know nature, respect it and follow its advice: in a sense he must act like Caliban."
The new version of Nella Tempesta, at the end of the workshop, will be presented on August 4 at the Teatro alle Tese (10:00 pm).
