texts of Stelle della sera (Evening Stars) are included in the same collection,
Tele (Clothes): five little tragedies of the same scene. It is, in reality, five
stages on a way that proceed toward the dissolution of the character and the progressive
put on the scene the spectator giving to the theatrical technologies (for instance,
sound machines in different places, lights in function of the characters, music
as an element of composition) the task of create a tense atmosphere and strongly
oriented to the reactions of the spectator. These tragedies offer themselves not
just as a little, repeatable piece of atrocities but also and above
all as an attempt of musical theatre and so, finally, as a study on
the concept catharsis.
On one hand, therefore, is simple to trace in these texts the prosecution of the same technological paroxysm that isolates the theatrical larvae of the last Becketts work (starting from the television one), on the other hand the progressive reduction of the scenic space in a plot (or even in a residual material dripping on each every single spectator) transforms the whole theatrical ambient (not just the stage) in a parallel world, covertly psychotic (as though we will end up, from the quiet of our pit, in a suction and focusing in a screen). It is a sensorial theatre (or of sensorial iper-stimulations) and of their echo-room: a theatre that tries to involve in the action the physical as well the perception of the spectator, by virtue of that, ones, theatre (lights, sounds, images, stage, stall) absolutely unrepeatable also in the most emotionally, sensitively, mass-medial representation.
