Kaninchen” is the nickname of humans used as experimental animals in the nazi concentration camps
– First production of SKARAVENTER PROJECT, directed by Lucia Falco, with Marcello Serafino and Lucia Falco, text by Marcello Serafino, stage adaptation by Lucia Falco; light design by Michele Di Erre, english translation by Michelangelo Lanza –
A friendship born in a concentration camp
– Kaninchen is freely inspired to story of Johan George Elser, the man who attempted on the life of Adolf Hitler –
A closed-eyes dance with moving feet
– Kaninchen is a journey through the different dimensions of the theater space, dragging in its unforeseeable dance the ghosts of his appearances –
The strength of a sublime love that overcomes barriers to exist
– Kaninchien brings on stage the false in front of the true, the art of live performance and the truth of the theatrical action –
Beyond sound, beyond light, beyond time
– Elser invites us to a burning awareness, offering a tribute to dead people and to the truth of things, and finding the radiant beauty of the creatures living in the dark light of the moon –
Created after a road trip between Berlin, Dresden, Nuremberg and Dachau, Kaninchen is a work of nerves, a balancing game, in a space where there is no respite for the body. This body that runs and digs, crunches and floats, emerges and jumps, crawls and implores, explores and dares.
Sometimes, in my works, I try to create strong images, spaces, rhythms and poetry, to rebuild the world. In this show is possible to meet visions and colors, voices and bursts, the world and its links with the violence, the twists and turns of history. The scene is made of movement, dance, voices: two actors who, together, invent a celebration of the life forces, for a necessary theater.
(Lucia Falco, the director)
