Splendid’s was inside the story of Rooms, like Swann in love inside the Recherche, a doorway, secondary at first sight, but which is actually crucial. The only theatrical text Motus performed at that time, in 2002, was at the heart of a project dedicated to apparition rooms, where the spectres of the West appeared. The video doubled and dissembled appearances; those images are back today, inside the Hello Stranger project.
Today RAFFICHE goes on stage. It takes inspiration from that dramaturgy, after the strict denial to an all-female cast by the agents detaining Jean Genet’s copyrights, with an original text by Barile & Scarlini. The video of the show, realized in 2004 by Enrico Casagrande and Daniela Nicolò, and produced by Motus with Riccione TTV, is another tile of the mosaic. In the lavish and decadent Riccione Grand Hotel, closed for the winter season, the directors, in the dimension of a medium-length film, follow the actors (the same of the theatre cast) with the camera, dancing along with them.
Introduced by Luca Scarlini, writer and music consultant of Splendid’s.
Second show at 7 pm
