Macbeth (from Shakespeare)

Franco Parenti Theatre, Milan, Italy

My MFA diploma production with the actors of the School of Dramatic Art “Paolo Grassi”. I emphasized Malcolm’s story and the theme of free will. The video of the performance was later shown at Centro Festival del Teatro d’Europa, Palazzo Reale, Milan.

 

 

 

The Tragedy of Noble Antony (from Shakespeare)

The Tragedy of Noble Antony (from Shakespeare)

School of Dramatic Art “Paolo Grassi” – Sala Colonne, Milan, Italy

In this dramaturgy of two of Shakespeare’s Roman plays, scenes from Julius Caesar and Anthony and Cleopatra explored Antony’s character in its entirety. Three male actors played all the roles including Cleopatra and the Roman mob, and this brought about many inventive solutions in a mixture of tragedy and comic moments.

 

The Wisteria by Serge Rezvani

The Wisteria by Serge Rezvani

School of Dramatic Art “Paolo Grassi”, Milan, Italy
Villa Casalini, Rovigo, Italy

A play by a visionary Iranian/French contemporary author. I staged it first in a circus setting, then in an actual Italian villa, where the fictional action takes place. The two versions tackled the challenge of how to show beauty onstage in two different ways: the first through imagination and transposition, the second by referring to the real thing.
