Chi ha ucciso mio padre
Running time 90’
Collaborating for the first time as directors instead of dramaturgs or performers, Daria Deflorian and Antonio Tagliarini stage the last autobiographical novel by Édouard Louis, the young French writer and intellectual who became a great publishing success in France and who, with strong and effective prose, gives a scorching and impassionate analysis of the the class struggle, of the relation between dominated and dominants. Performed by Francesco Alberici, Chi ha ucciso mio padre is a dialogue for single voice, a “letter to the father” in which a homosexual son delivers the father, haunted by masculinity and by the knowledge of being himself an outcast, to premature death – a death caused by the laws and the rules of a form of power which is no longer considering the lives of the people they eject when they get in the way.
Daria Deflorian and Antonio Tagliarini are authors, directors and performers. In 2008 they created Rewind, omaggio a Cafè Müller di Pina Bausch. Between 2010 and 2011 they realised Reality Project, which led to the installation-performance czeczy/cose (2011) and the performance Reality (2012), for which Deflorian was awarded the 2012 Ubu Prize as Best Leading Actress. Ce ne andiamo per non darvi altre preoccupazioni (2013) won a Ubu Prize in 2014 for Best New Italian Entry and the Critics’ Prize in Quebec, Canada, in 2016. They then created two site-specific works: Il posto (2014) and Quando non so cosa fare cosa faccio (2015) inspired by the film by Antonio Pietrangeli, Io la conoscevo bene. Il cielo non è un fondale (2016) won Gianni Staropoli the 2017 Ubu Prize for Best Lighting Design. In 2018 they premiered two projects about Michelangelo Antonioni’s film Deserto Rosso: Scavi and Quasi niente, for which Gianni Staropoli won another Ubu Prize for his lighting.
