La menzogna

Duration: 1h 30


Pippo Delbono has always been telling stories coming from the inner side of his body and soul. Just like Kantor, Pippo Delbono attacks the stage reality, conducting it according to his own invention. His theatre is a constant penetration of one's memory, arousing emotions hidden in the innermost recesses of one's history and one's soul.

"La Menzogna" ("The Lie") portrays the poverty and hardships of the working people; the false and empty life of the rich; and pure joy of those who do not seem to deserve happiness. They are disabled, handicapped, rejected. They are beautiful.

The starting point for frenetic, sensual images is a tragic accident that happened in December 2007 in the Turin plant of ThyssenKrupp (one of the largest steelmakers in the world). Seven steelworkers died in a fi re, and the board of the Italian branch charged the staff with negligence and impropercontrol of the devices.
