The main characters are Ines, Estella and Garcin, two women and a man sent to hell: a room with just one door closed and inside three chairs. Here people meet and clash for the first time. They lived different lives but they all have something in common: the reason why they are sharing the void. There are no torture devices, differently from what they had expected, and for a moment they believe to be safe. But the suffering is forthcoming and they quickly realize how the atonement is cruel. It starts a slow and painful consciousness of their sins that makes their personal tragedy emerge. Here's the real hell: To be reflected in the others, recognize our own faults in theirs and have no peace. Hell is all in their mind, it is an everlasting pain in their psyche. Garcin: "I died too soon, I wasn't allowed time to do my deeds". Ines: "When I say I'm cruel, I mean I can't get on without making people suffer". Estella: "I feel so queer. When I can't see myself begin to wonder if I really and truly exist". "Hell through tango" An original representation joined with tango (the soundtrack is by Astor Piazzolla, René Aubry, Gothan Project, Mariano Mores) that gives the work dynamics and engaging rhythms. Tango represents the most direct mean of expression to convey the characters’ anguish and despair, especially when the pain makes them dumb. When they are not able to speak, the body rebels and sets free its language. The performance of this play represents a new theatre research, the Drama - Choreography, which put together various arts into a single expression style. The reality comes knocking at your door, all of us are free to choose. When we take our choices, we choose ourselves. Only our deeds decide who we are. "A porte chiuse” is the reality beyond our door. Sooner or later we will open it and find our true and deepest soul that we have tried to hide all our life.
Berlin, 1921. The Armenian student Soghomon Tehlirian is on trial for killing with a gun Talaat Pasha, one of the organizers of the genocide, refugee in 1919 in Germany under false name, to escape a death sentence for "crime of injured humanity" to the Armenian population living in the Ottoman Empire. After two days of trial, Talaat -for which they reconstruct the outrageous deeds through the dramatic revelations of survivor deponents - to be morally condemned: the evidences against him are so terrifying that Tehlirian is absolved for his murder. The pleadings, from which comes the inspiration for the show "The great calamity", are a valuable point to understand that terrible tragedy of the Armenian genocide in 1915: faithfully reported dialogues, souvenir of words, letters and vintage images living again on stage, all these materials will create a vortex of information that help the audience to understand the real drama of that events, the judicial system of those years, and it's a way to enlight a forgotten chapter of men's history. It is documented, through a chorus of eighteen characters involved in the reconstruction process, by numerous episodes forming a clear picture of the political context in which the genocidal project was implemented.

What is Tango? is a dance, a music, a passion, a fad, a distraction, a vent, un'illusioneIl Tango is the sublimation of everything we wanted to and we have not had is the projection of a longing, hope that tomorrow is better the need of being kidnapped and go back to dreaming. The Tango is the desire to be embraced like frightened children who crave love is hunger are not alone, not to remain in the darkness of mundane existence is the catharsis of a pain never sopitoIl Tango has two adult eyes wide with wonder, surprise The revelation is an encounter with the Spirit is restless dancing with Life and Death is a bystander. Tango is the soul balm on the scars of passion is a warm blanket that becomes a refuge in the winters of the heart is a veil over his eyes that repairs the lightning of reality. The Tango is a possible truth of human existence is impossible intuition, faith, obsession is the hand that does not allow us to fall in vuotoIl Tango We are, little children of this created fragile, powerful, cowards, heroes always looking for Ourselves between the notes of a song.
