WELL, COME HOME!

Elena Morena Weber | Oliver Kühn

The picturesque village of Fescoggia turns into a stage. Protagonists are the history of migration of Malcantone, a particular region in the South of Switzerland, involving a professional cast as well as amateurs between 8 and 76 years old.

 

In a site-specific setting, the piece narrates the story of a woman who returns to the place of her childhood, taking the audience onto a surreal journey. Walking through the narrow streets, past and present, dream and reality begin to melt. What follows is a feast dedicated to life, where spectators, villagers and Malcantonese emigrants will eventually gather at table to celebrate the joy of being together.

Il pittoresco pase di Fescoggia si trasforma in palcoscenico. Protagonisti la storia di migrazione del Malcantone ed un cast di professionisti ed amatori tra gli 8 ed i 76 anni.

  

In un arrangiamento site-specific si narra la storia di una donna che torna nel luogo della sua infanzia, portando il pubblico attraverso un surreale viaggio. Attraversando le strette vie, passato e presente, sogno e realtà si confondono. Infine si celebra una grande festa dedicata alla vita e alla morte in cui pubblico, abitanti ed emigranti Malcantonesi condividono la gioia di condividere un banchetto.

Das malerische Dorf Fescoggia wird zur Theaterbühne. Protagonisten sind  die Migrationsgeschichte vom Malcantone, einer besonderer Region der Südschweiz und ein Cast aus Profis und Amateure zwischen 8 und 76 Jahren.

 

In einem ortsspezifischen Setting erzählt das Stück die  Geschichte einer Frau, die an den Ort ihrer Kindheit zurückkehrt und das Publikum durch eine surreale Reise führt. Vergangenheit und Gegenwart, Wirklichkeit und Traum durchmischen sich in den engen Gassen des Dorfes. Was folgt ist ein Fest auf das Leben und den Tod wobei Zuschauer, Bewohner und Emigranten aus dem Malcantone die Freude des Zusammenseins feiern.
