Sabato 21 novembre, ore 20.30
AstaroTheatro Sint Jansstraat 37 Amsterdam 

Fiore di Luna è la storia di un ex-soldato che torna a casa dopo l’ennesima inutile guerra.Fiore di Luna è una storia di mare.Per attraversare lo stretto di mare che lo separa dalla sua isola l’eroe ha bisogno di un traghetto, la misteriosa Fiore di Luna spunta all’improvviso da una grotta e gli dà una mano.
Soltanto nelle ultime scene capiremo perché. Lo spettacolo si snoda come monologo, dialogo e storytelling.
L’attrice entra nei panni dell’eroe, di Fiore di Luna e di voce narrante.
Altri protagonisti sono il mare e le sue creature marine (le orche, bizzarri mostri giocherelloni). La storia si svolge in tre brevi atti di 15’, 15’e 10’ con due pause.
Fiore di Luna è un libero adattamento di Silvia Terribili ispirato da un racconto all’interno del romanzo Horcynus Orca di Stefano D’Arrigo.

“Rich corporations, poor Societies”
A lecture in English by Rodrigo Fernandez (researcher of SOMO)

Het Spinhuis, Singel 165a (under the bridge) Amsterdam
Never before were corporations more awash with cash, outside of a small group of corporate managers and shareholders hardly anyone is benefiting. On the contrary: corporate financial investments reinforce troubling trends of high unemployment, rising debts, inequality and fiscal austerity in Europe and the US an precarious and badly paid jobs in the Global South. To contribute to a more balanced and sustainable economy, multinational corporations should be forced by governments to: pay their fair share in taxes pay decent wages invest their cash reserves in productive rather than financial assets
