Motel – Second Room

gruppo nanou

Ravenna, Italy
Visual Theatre

Semi-darkness, oppressive. A sofa and an armchair in red leather. A lamp and a table. A room with a particular aura. A hiding place, somewhere at the edge of the world. A man, a woman – maybe a couple. A second man – perhaps a doorman. Dubious, conspiratorial. Short, abrupt picture stories. Each one could be quoting a scene from a film. Everything remains vague, hinted at: a relationship, an argument, eroticism, jealousy, a conspiracy... maybe murder? Everything is acted in secrecy because the people have something to hide. They are restless, like animals before an oncoming catastrophe.
