Like the oldest of fairy tales referenced in the title, Addormentate takes place in a forest, at the end of a feast in a meadow, under the lights of a nostalgic waning life-force. Written by Carolina Balucani, winner of the call that the Biennale College Teatro dedicated to playwriting, Addormentate, presented as a mise en lecture, is a story of the least among us. As Balucani explains: “I imagined a humanity that, because of an unknown unfathomable curse, dresses up as a sleeping beauty. People who take on the role of the sleepers. Each of them has been injured by something they should not have touched, like the sleeping beauty. His hand is stained red, no one can come close to him, and now he can do nothing but sleep, just like the people who have come into contact with him must sleep. These sleeping beauties fall asleep alone and dream alone, but in the dream they are all together again”.

An actress and an author, Carolina Balucani wrote and performed Thyssen (2015), directed by Marco Plini; her other text, La Regina Coeli, was published by Editoria e Spettacolo, winning the twelfth edition of the 2017 Tuttoteatro.com “Dante Cappelletti” Prize for the dramatic arts.
