Apart from shooting crazy videos in front of romanesque churches in this period I’m also interviewing various people from the physical theatre world. It’s a new project which I’ve called FISICO Lounge. Here’s the latest one with James Donlon. I kept it short and sweet: one and half hour long…. however James had a lot […]

Stream man

Gosh. I’ve just realized I have been a lazy boy not posting here for a while. Or maybe it’s just the opposite. Been incredibly busy on multiple fronts. Among the many our next edition of FISICO (Alba International Physical Theatre Festival) which should take place at the end of May 2021. Given the fact we have […]

So much to do… so little time

November… As it was to be expected we’re now entering the real storm (something that was easy to predict as I had written in one of my posts). However, despite the stream of bad news we are receiving daily I’m more than optimistic about the future. Yes, we will have to do double Cape Horn […]

The quiet before the storm

It’s been a hectic 2 weeks and I must say that between the unbearable heat and the tons of things I’m doing at the moment I’m on the verge of a breakdown. Now, that happened before and it’s not a tragedy. It’s a good way to know what your limits are and how far you […]

Man is a rope, tied between beast and overman – a rope over an abyss. A dangerous across, a dangerous on-the-way, a dangerous looking-back, a dangerous shuddering and stopping. Friedrich Nietzsche – Thus Spake Zarathustra   A short post… I haven’t written anything in two weeks and sooooo much has happened since them. Among the […]

Writer’s block and things that rock!

This coming Monday theatres and cinemas will be allowed to open in Italy. How many will actually open is another story. In any case, psychologically, it seems the pandemic is behind us as we are adapting to the new normal (I went twice to a restaurant this week). The virus lurks somewhere, hidden in the […]

No fore PLAY without a CONDOM

On the 15th of June, in theory, theatres should be allowed to open in Italy. It’s a big leap of faith as June is not exactly the best month to open doors…. at least for indoor theatres. June is a month that marks the END of the theatre season for venues, not the beginning. The […]

The picture above comes from pixabay.com, just in case you wonder. The first two months of this earthquake (counting exactly from February 26th when I cancelled all of our shows) were such an emotional rollercoaster it stopped all creative energy. I had all the time of the world but I was blocked, clogged, unable to […]

Wear Sunscreen

Don’t worry about the future Or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing Bubble gum The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind The kind that blindsides you at 4 p.m. On some idle Tuesday Everybody’s […]

I have seen corpses thrown down in front of the temple doors, in front of the altars, to make their deaths even more of a reproach. Some cut off their breath with a noose, and banished, by death, their fear of death, summoning their approaching fate from the beyond. Ovid – Metamorphoses, book VII – Aeacus […]

  The morning….as soon as I wake up. The best time of the day I guess for a lot of people to harness their creative energy. That’s when the the unconscious and conscious are still united for a spell of time before that tiny spider web is swept away by the noise of our mind […]

‘The situation in Great Britain is serious but not hopeless.’ Winston Churchill speaking to Eamon De Valera, 1953 Over twenty days in self-isolation… In my last post I commented how the world as we know it has ended. In a future post I will dwell on my long-term vision regarding the immense geopolitical and economic […]

The end of the world (as we know it)

Today marks my first two weeks in self-isolation. A long time ago I decided I was going to be happy no matter what the circumstances were. It’s a promise I made to myself after having spent years worrying to reach some goal that somehow would have changed the way I feel about life in general. It […]

Theatre and epidemics – A lonely business

And the great licentiousness, which also in other kinds was used in the city, began at first from this disease. For that which a man before would dissemble and not acknowledge to be done for voluptuousness, he durst now do freely, seeing before his eyes such quick revolution, of the rich dying and men worth […]

I and my new best friend: Covid-19

Following my last post of the 22nd of February a lot of things changed in my life. Among the many I happened to make a new friend who will stay around me for quite a long time. His name is Covid and I bumped into him almost unexpectedly. Given that Covid is an acute narcissist […]

If you can’t find time – make time

It’s been a busy couple of weeks. This past 7th of February we had the last performance of the month and we then moved on to organize the first edition of an International Physical Theatre Festival in the city of Alba, Italy. I didn’t want to write about it as it was a real shot […]

Writing a story, fermenting wine

“How long does it take you to write a story?” That’s one of the questions people generally ask me. The truth is that the actual ‘writing’ is fairly fast. What really consumes time is the research on the topic I have to write about. As I originally wanted to be a scriptwriter for film (theatre […]

BREXIT – You cannot predict the future

As we’re about to stage our second performance here in Brighton I’m writing this final post from an undisclosed location of the city. The day seems to be blessed with a warm summer sun, people are out on the beach or sipping a drink in the many bars scattered along the seafront and I have […]

BREXIT – the 5 ingredients of Populism

We’re finally in Brighton. Today I’ve been walking about flyering a little bit while enjoying the city at the same time. Given that yesterday I woke up at 5 am and didn’t go to bed until 2 am of the following day I’m feeling a bit weak, to say the least. In any case, I’m […]
