IL TEATRO DEGLI ZOPPI
Alla ricerca di un'identità in scena
As taught by Vladimir J. Propp, in any fairy tale (even in the theatrical ones) there is a hero who must always face obstacles to become or obtain what he really wants. Here is that the lameness becomes emblematic of all those difficulties often intrinsic of the human being and that the hero must overcome.
With "Il teatro degli zoppi" (literally translated: "The theatre of lame"), Stefano Simone Pintor faces an original topic that has had very few spaces within the history of Western theatrical publications. The book is presented as a story of a real journey, undertaken with the desire to travel physically and spiritually in the places in which the characters and the authors analyzed lived.
From Oedipus to Harlequin here is a compendium of lame characters, compiled by a professional in the theatrical field, enriched by an important iconographic section.
