I Maltagliati

TO SING A LIFE

A woman. A radio. A pasta dish – and first of all singing.

An old woman is standing in her kitchen cooking a pasta dish, I Maltagliati, for a guest. During a morning she relives her life through songs.

The performance is built around a series of powerful, Italian folk songs and other songs that uniquely communicates ordinary human feelings, desires and dreams. The songs are the voice of ordinary people and cover all aspects of everyday life: working, loving, struggling, being born and dying.

The story takes place in two different spaces: the physical space, the kitchen, where the woman makes pasta only in the company of a radio, and a space of memories, where we see the woman's life in flashbacks, open to the viewer's own interpretation.

I Maltagliati is performed in Danish/Italian or English/Italian, and is primarily sung. A strong performance about a woman's life, directed and performed by Sandra Pasini.

Press quote

"Chamber play in Italian. This is what you can call Teatret OMs performance I Maltagliati, which was received with thunderous applause. The music, her brilliant body language and fantastic voice, lead the audience safely through a woman's life told by an old woman while she cooks.
