What is a family?
To find the answer to this question, we invite you to look into the cracks of the old house. We will spy on the life of a family living in Ukraine in the 90s. A family in which three generations combine their lives. What used to be of great importance quickly ceases to be appreciated by descendants. We will move to the times of the collapse of the USSR, we will find ourselves at the crossroads of time. It was when America began to appear on the shelves of our stores.
And let’s imagine that all the actors will be wearing masks? In modern “Commedia dell’Arte” masks.
How without them? After all, the director of this play is Matteo Spiazzi (Italy).
Matteo Spiazzi (Italy) is a famous director, actor, drama teacher and organizer of theatrical events. He worked in theaters in Italy, Poland, Slovenia, Estonia, Austria, Belarus, Russia, Ecuador. Matteo specializes in modern “Commedia dell’Arte” (“Comedy of masks”) – a type of Italian folk theater whose performances are created by the method of improvisation, with the participation of professional actors dressed in masks.
“Family album/ Album di Famiglia” first performance by Matteo Spiazzi (Italy) in Ukraine. The exhibition was created with the support of the Embassy of Italy in Ukraine and the Italian Institute of Culture in Ukraine.
If you are missing new, unique theatrical experiences – this performance is definitely for you. The Italian theater in Ukraine became an inspiration and an unforgettable experience for our actors. So we decided to share these emotions with the closest people – our viewers.
