BOOK Presentation: mPalermu, Dancers, and Other Plays
mPalermu, Dancers, and Other Plays (Swan Isle Press, January 30, 2020)
Written by Emma Dante, Translated by Francesca Spedalieri
A book presentation of the first translation of some of the iconic plays by visionary director Emma Dante, one of the most exciting Italian theatre makers of the 21st century.
With the participation of Francesca Spedalieri.
Emma Dante’s lyrical storytelling stems from a visceral need to undertake an irreverent subversion of the status quo. The seven plays anthologized in this volume confront familial and societal realities in contemporary southern Italy, oscillating between the humorous and the tragic aspects of everyday life to challenge stereotypes and question economic disparity and gender inequality.
