NUIORC NUIORC by and with Francesco Foti (In Scena 2013)
February 4, 6 @7:30pm, February 7 @3pm
NIUIORC NIUIORC is a journey across the Big Apple, based on a true travel diary. A ‘young’ 40-year-old ‘boy’ finds himself disoriented in the big city. He gets lost in the streets, avenues and parks of Manhattan while meeting a unique collection of characters. A funny, tender and original story about finding yourself in a foreign city.
According to I-Italy, “Francesco Foti is fascinating, acting out all of the chapters of his journey while involving the audience, which laughs and follows him through it.”
This 75 minute solo show is written, directed and performed by Francesco Foti and performed in English and Italian.
L’ITALIA S’E’ DESTA (ITALY HAS ARISEN) by Rosario Mastrota, with Dalila Cozzolino (In Scena 2014)
February 5, 7 @7:30pm, February 6 @3pm
ITALY HAS ARISEN (“L’Italia s’è desta”) tells the story of Carletta, a Shakespearean village fool, who witnesses Calabrese mafia kidnap the Italian national soccer team. She’s the only person who knows where the team is hidden, but nobody believes her.
Eliza Bent of TDF noted that “Sly word play is never far off in their conversation, and along with heady jokes, L’Italia has a remarkable amount of lightness and heart.”
Titled after a lyric from the Italian national hymn, ITALY HAS ARISEN has been awarded numerous prizes in Italy, including the Teatropia 2012 award, the Restart Award at the Politically Incorrect Festival 2013, and Antimafie Dirittinscena Award 2013. It was also a finalist for the prestigious Hystrio Stage Writing award 2012. Written and directed by Rosario Mastrota, it is performed by Dalila Desirée Cozzolino.
With a running time of 70 minutes, it is performed in Italian and Calabrese Dialect with English Supertitles.
