Benedetto Sicca joins Emanuele D’Errico for a joint writing project, with Alla festa di Romeo e Giulietta.
In Romeo and Juliet every celebration ends with a funeral. The party where the two lovers meet for the first time leads to the funeral of Mercutio; the reception for the (cancelled) wedding between Juliet and Paris ends with the funerals of Romeo and Juliet. A circular play/celebration, during which the events from the Shakespearean tragedy allow the spectators/guests to join us in examining the important themes in the work; hedonism and nihilism, gratuitous hatred of those who are different, and the central value of friendship as a cornerstone of individuality. The question that we ask ourselves and our guests is: what does all of this have to do with love?
