Ash in the Fire

Ash in the Fire

Saturday 21 May 20:00
Sunday 22 May 17:00 (matinee)
(Please be on time!)

Poetry is the language we all should speak. A common inspiration, shared passions, unconditioned love.
A poem is much more than a poem. Ash in the Fire is theatre, music, dance, total expression. It’s the fire burning inside of us. It’s a journey through human feelings.
Starting from the Turkish poems by Barış Bilgiç, a full performance is ready for the international audience, thanks to the English acting of Roberto Bacchilega, the dance of Nina Novak and the universal language of music of Onur Inel and Ata Güner.
Ash in the Fire speaks the words from our heart from Anatolia to the world.

ğsümün göğünde, uçurtmalar uçuruyorum bide…
Kites fly in the sky of my chest

a Time for Silence

A Time for Silence
This unique monologue is back at AstaroTheatro!
Friday 29th April, 20:30

A Time for Silence
Carlos Trafic and Nader Farman
A conference on Silence

inspired by
WHITE SPACES (Paul Auster)
A dance to be read out loud
performed by Nader Farman
directed by Carlos Trafic

“ I dedicate these words to the impossibility of finding a word equal to the silence inside me . . . “ P.Auster

This performance brings the character of Gunther Braun to lead a meditative effort, somewhat burlesque and humorous at times, on questions around silence , space , time, the possibilities and limitations of language, the real and the unreal, the mysterious and the obvious. Will Silence, the only territory that cannot be mapped, remain unexplored ? isn’t the beauty of silence simply being ?

Entrance: € 5
