With “Matadero” by Giovanni Savino, walks on stage an ancient drama where life and death tightly and compassionately hold each other and the “Vucciria” by Guttuso is by now a faraway stylistic exercise.
Life being given and received, executioner and victim, confused screams from the man and the animal, bodies painted in blood, homogenizing the killer and the slaughtered as much as to appear an hyper- realistic illusion, just as if this excess of reality -putting you through an emotional overload- could open the door of ordinary consciousness, leading us beyond, in a state of de-realization, de-personification, of trance, where space and time hang universally: it is today in the Dominican Republic but could well be one thousand years ago in the European middle ages.
