Marx is Back (a Play on History)

Marx is Back
MARX IS BACK (a Play on History)

“Why have I returned? to clear my name!”
Karl Marx has had enough of seeing his revolution taken over by opportunists organizing each time a new priesthood and a new hierarchy, with excommunications and indexes, with inquisitions and firing squads. He is disgusted by media declaring him dead again and again. Karl Marx is back to remind us that his ideas are more alive than ever. He revisits memories of his courageous life and revolutionary theories. We learn about his family, his struggles and the boils on his arse.

AstaroTheatro Collective presents a monologue by Howard Zinn adapted and performed by Roberto Bacchilega

After the Free Fringe Festival Marx is Back again!

Edoardo Erba è uno dei più brillanti autori della drammaturgia italiana contemporanea. AstaroTheatro presenta 3 suoi microdrammi caratterizzati da una lettura a più strati. Nonostante la leggerezza delle situazioni si aprono inaspettati e grotteschi colpi di scena. La messa in scena essenziale ed emozionante rivela un intelligente senso dell’umorismo e un raffinato uso della lingua italiana.
Lo spettacolo e’ in italiano.

Edoardo Erba is een van de meeste briljante auteurs van de hedendaagse Italiaanse dramaturgie.
AstaroTheatro presenteert 3 van zijn microaktes, gekarakteriseerd door een lezing op verschillende lagen. Ondanks de lichtheid van de situaties, komen er onverwachte en groteske coups de scène voor. De essentiële en rijk aan emoties mise en scène onthult een intelligente gevoel voor humeur en een geraffineerd gebruik van de Italiaanse taal.
Het toneelstuk is in het Italiaans
