The reviews are IN for NELLA TEMPESTA!

“'Nella Tempesta,' which runs through Dec. 21 at the Ellen Stewart Theater at La MaMa, 
is a full-throated cry to the young and disaffected to get off their collective duffs, 
shake off their shackles and do something. Conceived and directed 
by Daniela Nicolò and Enrico Casagrande, this production turns 
a cast of six and an assortment of blankets into an 80-minute youthquake 
that seems likely to leave even cynical audience members shaken and stirred."

- Ben Brantley, The New York Times


"a ruminative and resonant production by Italy's Motus Theatre Company...This isn't so much a drama as an evocative theatrical search through the symbolic sphere. Nella Tempesta can be discursive, but ultimately it makes an elegiac and stirring forecast of bad political weather headed our way." 

-Tom Sellar, Village Voice


"BEST BET...A mind expanding new production from Italy’s Motus Theatre Company that masterfully illuminates contemporary political and climate change issues alongside text borrowed from Shakespeare."
- Keith Paul Medelis, Theatre Is Easy


"Political Drama At Its Finest...It’s refreshing to see this kind of play at La MaMa. Plays like Nella Tempesta provide exactly the kind of theater experience that keeps La MaMa so relevant."
Marcina Zaccaria, Theater Pizzazz 


 the third production of “The Tempest” at LaMaMa this season, 
and it is richly inventive and visually arresting.’s the blankets that make this show so breathtaking. 
The blankets comfort, and buffet and transport us. 

- Jonathan Mandell, New York
