Premiere: Teatro delle Passioni, Modena, 17/12/2019

About this event

Giorgina Pi, one of the founders of the Collective Angelo Mai in Rome, brings to the stage Wasted, the text of Kate Tempest, an explosive artist who mixes rap, poetry, politics and music, creating a unique style that makes her becoming an icon of youth protest for the English cultural scene.

Wasted blooms from the theme of mourning and develops on the struggle to change without loosing themselves. Poetry, music and choir deal with the impossibility to have back what you wanted. A story in which two men and a woman gathered to commemorate the loss of a friend happened ten years before. Confrontation, thoughts and illusions flow on the ridge of pain, on the impossibility to become what you wanted to and the struggle to be just who you can be.

We are in front of a work that mixes wisely different languages, a total piéce. Poetry in rap style, with microphones and streams of consciousness addressed to the audience (“I have no idea about what am I doing here”) combined with everyday scenes. An anciently inspired choir interpreted by the characters themselves.
