This is not a version of Tomasi di Lampedusa’s novel, The Leopard but an invention, a scenic reasoning, a folly in theatre form: building a show which, looking to the past (national, cultural and personal) and looking at the present (continually pushed back into the past), takes us elsewhere. If not in the future then at least in the potential to imagine it. With the risk of going too far, we want to create a language which brings together the sacred and the profane, literary and ordinary lexicon, free of censorship. We thus want a show which is free, just like the 60’s Italian singer and dancer Raffaella Carrà, free of the yoke of lacquer with her famous head banging.
