(A che punto è la notte)
staged reading taken from the book Lampedusa by Maylis de Kerangal
with Lucilla Giagnoni
music by Paolo Pizzimenti
“I am used to the long dark night. Every creative act originates in darkness. Every story is born out of blackness. The most intense part of my theatrical journey I owe to the image of a woman who decides one night to go down into her garden, which she has built a wall around.
In that hortus conclusus she confronts her night of the soul, and, removing one stone at a time from the wall, comes upon the relentless dawning of the morning. That woman is me.
Today I come, thanks to you, to Maylis de Kerangal and to a woman who on night on 3 October 2013, heard on the radio the news of the tragic death of 300 people on the sea off Lampedusa. That woman sitting in a kitchen in Paris is a writer.
Lampedusa reveals itself as a condition of our state of being: narrators, actors and actresses, navigators, wanderers, but more importantly (and these are conditions that have no sexual gender in our language), refugees migrants, guests.”
