About the event
«Fiesta» Inspired by the Nobel Prize winning Colombian writer Gabriel García Márquez, is a joyful parade with thirteen feet high stilt-walkers, characters with faces of papiermâché, masks and vibrant costumes, whistles and fire.
As Fiesta advances, people follow this wild, exciting parade. At once, it stops: spectators form a big circle, the heroine Erendira’s admirer and a bandit are struggling and hunting each other, running, dancing and jumping acrobatically on stilts. And then it goes on, from scene to scene; in an onomatopoetic language-mix including a dramatic shipwreck and a turbulent rendezvous of four lovers.
The actors sing traditional Italian a cappella-songs about love and rebellion accompanied by an accordion and tell short burlesque stories.
Teatro Due Mondi is an independent theatre group from Faenza in Italy. Since the group’s foundation in 1979 Teatro Due Mondi has always investigated human relationships in contemporary society and has developed a style that allows direct and immediate communication with the spectators.
