Triennale Teatro dell'Arte
An intense and poetic show that brings Giacometti's extraordinary sculptures to life.

Second appointment with Alessandro Serra, one of the most esteemed Italian directors, and his company Teatropersona: L’ombra della sera, a piece inspired by the life and work of Alberto Giacometti, iconic artist of the 1900’s. A work which intertwines theatre and dance and underlines Serra’s multifaceted vision.
On stage is one female interpreter whose performance is inspired by three women in the artist’s life: his mother Annetta, his wife Annette and the prostitute Caroline. A tale that doesn’t wish to become biographic but wishes to give substance to the human nature that emerges from Giacometti’s works, from the faces and bodies that he shaped or traced on the borders of a newspaper. Faces and bodies in which we can recognize ourselves.

with: Chiara Michelini
