SYNOPSIS
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play traces the gradual restriction of autonomous spaces for women – including sexual autonomy – under Fascism, using historical documents such as Mussolini’s and the Catholic Church’s speeches about the ‘wife-mother’ binomial, and employing the metaphor of Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.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. Alice herself is different – in that she is a human being – in a world of ‘different’, non-human creatures, a world that rejects diversity and embraces homogenization as dictated by the ‘red’ fascism of the Queen of Hearts. A world where those who rebel are decapitated or summarily sentenced, punished even before being found guilty.
