The theatre company Instabili Vaganti, from Bologna, is going back to United Kingdom, after the success, the nominations and the awards obtained with the play MADE IN ILVA at the Fringe Festival of Edinburgh, in summer 2014. The performance about the ILVA factory of Taranto will be put up again in Scotland, this time in Invernees, in the very heart of the Highlands, on May 29th 2015, in the prestigious Eden-Court Theatre, thanks to the support of the Institute of Italian Culture in Edinburgh.
The Inverness date comes just before the stop-over in Liverpool, when on May 28-29th, Anna Dora Dorno and Nicola Pianzola, the two members of the Instabili Vaganti company, will run an intensive workshop about physical theatre, called “Il corpo organico” – the organic body, with the promotional support of the Institute of Italian Culture in London and during the International Physical Fest, the eagerly-awaited event about physical theatre in England.
MADE IN ILVA has been much appreciated by the international critics and it is the result of an artistic research aimed at raising people’s awareness about the alienation of the factory worker, caught up in a production system that changes the human being into an artificial machine. It also tells about the inside conflicts that the workmen of Ilva have been experiencing every day, between the desire to escape from a cage made of steel, of deaths on work-duty, of environmental damages, of consequences on people’s health, and the need to work in order to make a living. MADE IN ILVA has received 6 awards from the critics and 3 nominations.
