Carmen – Naples
2017 . 07 . 07 - 2017 . 07 . 16
Carmen’s challenge: Spain interpreted by a French-singing choir from Naples; it’s beautiful, because this contradiction is a part of my whole world: I work in a fifty-strong theatre company, originating from 18 countries, where speaking different languages opens us to unusual horizons, because nobody speaks right but we all understand each-other. There are topics rich with doubts, for example violence on women: already blocking the road, already hindering someone from going in the direction of their choice, even if this seems unfair and evil, but each one of us has the right to undertake certain choices. In Carmen it was necessary to find a way to express all this without falling into stereotypes. So the light, the splendour of the gates to Seville, this light that creates areas of brightness and areas of shade allows us to highlight this minimal specularity that we have: areas of night and areas of day, we are radiant and magnificent in our want for freedom, and at times we act tragically in trampling on others’ souls without even noticing.
