Rumore di acque (Noise in the Waters)


The published text for Rumore di acque (Noise in the Waters) just arrived.  And this excerpt is from the introduction:
Now rumore di acque arrives in New York….to La MaMa, forever a symbol of Theatre that doesn’t give up.  To put it in black and white terms, we can say that there are two ways to do Theatre in this world. One is what we call show business. There is another type, though, which combines head and heart, emotion and reason, enchantment and rebellion.  A Theatre that, following the vision of Augustine of Hippo, and African theologian of the 5th century, embraces the challenge of Hope, who is said to have two children: Scorn for the way things are, and Courage to try to change them.  Cheerfully heretical. La MaMa belong to this second way of doing Theatre.
Thanks for the lovely words, Marco!

The books will be available for purchase at the theatre before and after performances of Rumore di acque (Noise in the Waters).
