Pentesilea

Masque teatro
Forlì - Italy

Liberamente ispirato all’opera di Heinrich von Kleist e riletto attraverso l”’Anti-Edipo” di Deleuze e Guattari

Maschio Bianco Adulto. Condizione patologica.
Geneticamente compromesso con la Natura Killer.
Pentesilea/Achille entità “schizo”.

“L’ es funziona ovunque, ora senza sosta, ora discontinuo.
Respira, scalda, mangia. Caca, fotte.
… Ovunque sono macchine, per niente metaforicamente: macchine di macchine, coi loro accoppiamenti, colle loro connessioni.
Una macchina-organo è innestata su una macchina-sorgente: l’una emette un flusso che l’altra interrompe.”

The play is freely inspired by the work by Heinrich Von Kleist and reinterpreted through the book “Anti-Oedipus” by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari.

A White Adult Man. Under pathological condition. Genetically inclined to be a Natural Born Killer.
Penthesilea/Achilles: a “schizophrenic” entity.
How shall I act?
“It is at work everywhere, functioning smoothly at times, at other times in fits and starts.
It breathes, it heats, it eats. It shits and fucks.
…Everywhere it is machines–real ones, not figurative ones: machines driving other machines, machines being driven by other machines, with all the necessary couplings and connections. An organ-machine is plugged into an energy-source machine: the one produces a flow that the other interrupts.”
