Come Out! Stonewall Revolution

Show

Premiere
Duration: 60' (running time may vary)

Come Out! Stonewall Revolution tells the story of a before and an after, of freedom and barriers, of wishes and identity. The festival’s second volume opens with an event that fifty years ago sparked the birth of the Gay Pride. In June 1969, the Stonewall Inn in New York’s Greenwich Village was the background for a movement of rebellion that saw thousands of young people take to the streets to claim the right to love freely, to imagine new ways of being together and to subvert binary concepts and accepted norms. A crucial moment in the history of the LGBTQI+ community and of the 20th century, the Stonewall events are an opportunity to reflect on the present (power, identity, democracy and public space) through a dialogue between imaginary voices and archival material. A tribute to the acts of courage of those who fought in the name of freedom, gender equality and inclusion.

Michele Rho studied drama and directing at Scuola d’arte drammatica Paolo Grassi and trained in the context of an MFA in Screenwriting/Directing at New York’s Columbia University. He directs for the cinema, television and theatre. His first film, CAVALLI, was presented at the 68th Venice Cinema Biennale. He is one of the founders of Radio Raheem. 

Margherita Mauro is an author, dramaturg and translator. After graduating in Theatre Making at IUAV in Venice, she completed an MA in Playwriting at Kingston University in London. She is the author of: Marcel Duchamp, A Word Play; Lost Belongings; Regeneration, they call it; Prometheus; Ma cosa mi balena in mente?; Almeno si togliessero le scarpe; Futuro Anteriore. She has recently translated When the Rain Stops Falling by A. Bovell (winner of the 2019 Ubu prize for best new foreign play) and has collaborated as dramaturg with the director M. Badiluzzi on a project that won the 2019 Biennale College Teatro.
