Ce ne andiamo per non darvi altre preoccupazioni
The economic crisis is the background of this ironic and poignant work, which deals with a complex theme, both current and universal. Inspired by a novel by the Greek-Armenian writer Petros Markaris, Ce ne andiamo per non darvi altre preoccupazioni narrates the extreme gesture carried out by four retired women who take their own lives so as not to be a burden to society. Defying theatrical conventions, Daria Deflorian and Antonio Tagliarini, joined on stage by Monica Piseddu and Valentino Villa, construct a performative journey which interrogates suicide not as existential gesture but as extreme political act. The piece won the Ubu Prize in 2014 as best new Italian work and the Critics’ Award in Quebec.
Daria Deflorian and Antonio Tagliarini are authors, directors and performers. In 2008 they created Rewind – Omaggio a Cafè Müller by Pina Bausch, followed in 2009 by a work inspired by Andy Warhol’s philosophy, from a to d and back again. Between 2010 and 2011 they realised “Reality Project”, which, starting from the diaries of a housewife from Krakow, led to the installation 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, presented in 2013 at Romaeuropa Festival, won a Ubu prize in 2014 and the critics’ prize in Quebec, Canada, in 2016. Il cielo non è un fondale premiered in 2016 in Lausanne. In 2017 they began working on the “Antonioni/Red Desert Project, which led to the production of Scavi and of the piece Quasi Niente, which premiered in Lugano in 2018.
