Casi-Casa (Almost Home) grows around three very common household objects: a stove, a rocking chair and a door. These three objects are always on the stage and around them, everyday things, recognisable by everbody, happen. But the adience is pulled in by new elements that also start to emerge.
"I watch a lot of film and theater and look at a lot of art. But what's important to me most is reading the newspaper, watching my children, watching animals move in the park, watching the traffic; things that are not made to be seen. The stage set at the social level is very rich".
Costumes made by: Carmelina de Noia and CND
