About this event

How aware are we of the fact that when we talk about identity, we no longer mean the subject within a community, but rather the social power of its own “body-context”, of which the subject is the spokesperson?
This is one of the main questions of Kassandra, a hyper-contemporary rewriting by the Franco-Uruguayan playwright Sergio Blanco, one of the most interesting voices on the international scene.
The author sets the story in a sordid bar on the outskirts of a city. Kassandra sells cigarettes, sells her body and gets lost in the words of a language that is not her own and which she speaks with difficulty.
With Kassandra, Blanco decides to explore a woman “in transit”, with no fixed identity, no address, no country: a clandestine woman.
An ironic monologue, full of sound and music, funny but deeply touching, that talks about today through myth.
A myth that cannot but be reread with the eyes of the present, which talks about ‘polis’ in relation to the culture of difference, class struggle, gender identity, sexual orientation, inclusive language.
