Works

Summa Summarum

Production / Performance,
2004
A clown performance with live music. Two tombstones are standing in a graveyard of southern country. Under the first tomb rests the noble count José Fino and under the other is Spugna, the street-sweeper. One evening they rise from their graves and immediately a lot of trouble begins, which lasts most of the night. The Count cannot accept that classes are levelled in such a way that the street-sweeper can have his grave right next to his. The white clown who rules in Death’s garden interferes with the magic of music. At the end, when the morning breaks and the count and the street-sweeper have to return to their graves, they may have learnt something. Summa Summarum is inspired by a poem written by the Neapolitan comedian Totó. The title of the poem, A Livella, indicates the tool that carpenters use to level differences, just as Death does; for in death we are all equal, here there are no rich and poor. Actors: The white clown - Annemarie Waage Petersen José Fino Argentino - Ana Woolf Spugna - Sandra Pasini Director: Leris Colombaioni Stage design and costumes: Leris Colombaioni, Antonella Diana and Lisbeth Forbæk Technician: Roberto Mascioletti Dedicated to Giulia Huesca
