After three decades, Gabriele Vacis has returned to the saga of Oedipus’ bloodline, once again casting a company of young performers in the role of the crowd that fills the streets and squares of Thebes. Indeed, at the heart of this tragedy are the people who witness and comment on what is happening: a multitude of faces and voices that become the main characters and express public opinion. A multifaceted chorus whose invasive omnipresence succeeds in transforming any extraordinary event, however tragic, into a celebration or yet a market.

The Fonderie Limone theatre season opens with Gabriele Vacis’s triptych and the young actors from the compagnia PEM (Potenziali Evocativi Multimediali). The play is a journey through mythology, which has been revisited and adapted through the lens of the present to consider the roles, instincts and difficulties facing the younger generations in finding their place in a hyper-connected world yet still marked by harsh political and social conflicts.
