The Italian play “Moby Dick” directed by Stefan Te and produced by “Teatro dei Venti” will announce the 61st International Theater Festival MESS on Saturday at 6 pm in Susan Sontag Square.
Respecting the epidemiological measures adopted due to the coronavirus pandemic, the number of audiences for this event is limited. Those interested can pick up free tickets for this show at the MESS Festival Directorate on Thursday and Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
– We are very excited about the meeting with the audience of the Festival after a full two years. With this street theater spectacle, we want to show that art and theater belong to everyone, and in these pandemic days, the street theater is a good way to bring the festival closer to everyone by pointing out society’s need for art. Teatro dei Venti comes with a large play based on one of the most significant works of American and world literature, which, among other things, thematizes the relationship between man and nature – said Nihad Kresevljakovic – Director of the MESS Festival.
As he pointed out, Italian production is a real opportunity to meet the audience, because Italian theater inherits the tradition of performance in the squares with direct contact with people of all professions, ages and interests, and they are true virtuosos in their performances. “Moby Dick” is the latest production of “Teatro dei Venti”, which summarizes everything that this company bases its work on – it is a display of theatrical utopia in an urban environment and in contact with the community.
