Zō Centro Culture Contemporanee, Totò and Vicè open the show AltreScene

In a world increasingly characterized by a growing contamination between the levels of knowledge and action, even the stage inevitably takes on an increasingly multidisciplinary value. This imperative, well summarized in the guiding parameters of the Ministry of Culture, is the beacon that guides the action of Zō Contemporary Culture Center of Catania which is preparing to launch the new season of AltreScene, the review of contemporary creations. The multidisciplinary is inseparable from the contemporary, they are the stage arts 2.0. The theater that proposes Other Scenes rather than breaking further with tradition, it instead wants to recover and revisit memory but in a contemporary key as in the case of Totò and Vicè from Franco Scaldatiin the unedited reinterpretation of Giuseppe Cutino with Rosario Palazzolo, AntonGiulio Pandolfo, Egle Mazzamuto and Sabrina Petyx which opens the exhibition on Saturday 5 Novembera production of the Cultural Association Alternative Energies, Palermo, executive production ACTI Teatri Indipendenti, Turin, with the support of Babel / Spazio Franco, Palermo and Compagnia dell’Arpa, Enna.

Totò and Vicé are two of the most extraordinary characters of the universe of Franco Scaldati: born and lived in another time, linked in the soul by a mutual and absolute friendship, they live on fragments of dreamsalways in poised between earth and skyin an impregnable time, in one Palermo from the eternal night, where past and future coincide in an infinite present; Totò and Vicè feed each other, because only if there are two of them, only if they are the two of them can they be able to be. A poetic and moving text which offers countless ideas to reaffirm that the mirage exists: the mirage of a theater, the real theater, the one that takes your breath away with nothing; the theater that does not distinguish between the living and the dead; the theater that gets out of hand and teaches you the mystery of love. «Totò and Vicè – says the director Giuseppe Cutino – it is the theater that stages that humanity that always lives in dim light but on the stage shows the unbearable light of happiness, which makes the reality that surrounds you seem worn and ephemeral. A reality that today more than ever has the need to regain possession of the spirituality of death ».
