Marleen Scholten

La codista

Running time 60’

Slowing down. Stopping. Waiting. In times of hypervelocity and FOMO (fear of missing out), what happens when we are asked to wait, queue up for something? The award-winning actress Marleen Scholten premiers at FOG a piece on waiting, partially based on the true story of a Milanese who lost his job and came up with the idea of becoming a “queuer”, a person who waits in line on somebody else’s behalf for a fee. The queue becomes the receptacle of chaos, misunderstandings, anger, questions, despair, boredom, relief, or simply relationships between human beings who are stationary in a space with a common aim: wait their turn. A humorous, political, absurd and lucid reflection on identity.

Marleen Scholten is an actress and co-founder of the Dutch collective Wunderbaum. The company’s performances and projects have been presented in Europe, Los Angeles, New York, Teheran, Rio de Janeiro, Toronto. The collective’s members write, direct and perform their own works. Wunderbaum is based in Rotterdam and since 2018 has also curated the artistic direction of Theaterhaus Jena in Germany. Marleen Scholten moved to Milan four years ago. Their recent works are Chi è il vero italiano?, La storia della mia rigidità and La canzone nazionale, which have been presented in Italy, the Netherlands and Germany. Wunderbaum has been awarded, among other prizes, the Proscenium Prize (Amsterdam), the Mary Dresselhuys Prize (Rotterdam) and the Total Theatre Award (Edinburgh).
