F.M. E IL SUO DOPPIO – F.M. AND HIS DOUBLE
FABIO MARCEDDU

Capturing a changing world through the gaze of a restless teenager who is searching for his “Stable Ego,” “F.M.” is the story of a life – a portion of a life – whose driving force is theater. The love for theatre, the need to make theater, the challenges of being an actor in the suburbs of a country where being an actor is difficult. F.M. is Fabio Marceddu, but it’s also Female and Male, and “Frequenze Medie” (Middle Frequencies) – because the truth is in the middle – and “Fra Martino,” (Frère Jacques) the song that calls out to the Friar who sleeps instead of ringing the bells.

DEGEN(D)ERATION - IL FANTASMA DELLA TRIBADE/ DEGEN(D)ERATION - THE GHOST OF THE TRIBADE 
FRANCESCA FALCHI

Starting from the Manifesto of Futurist Woman by Valentine de Saint-Point, the play traces the gradual restriction of autonomous spaces for women – including sexual autonomy – under Fascism, using historical documents such as Mussolini’s and the Catholic Church’s speeches about the ‘wife-mother’ binomial, and employing the metaphor of Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. The material is interlaced with the stories of the protagonists, who attempt to cut out an autonomous space for themselves in their daily life, in an attempt to remain faithful to their inclinations.

THE B.L.A.C.K. PARTY
PRESENTED BY GREENFEEN
FRIDAY, MAY 11 | 9PM

We celebrate things that make us different. We honor Black and Queer lives. We know men are equally as important to women and other gendered family. We are not just men or women. We love and appreciate us all. We are learning to decolonize gender in ourselves. We think everyone should have the basic needs provided by nature. We know we are nature! We know there is enough to go around for all of us. We know the Earth as our mother and ourselves as animal, stardust, children of source. We know art has the power to communicate, challenge, connect and change. We know we are here to change the world. We are the world. We are changing. We believe in our healing and the healing of our communities. We will channel our creativity and create medicine for ourselves the people and planet. Welcome to the B.L.A.C.K Party.
