About this Event

Theatrical show La Giara (The Oil Jar - 1916) by famous Italian playwright Luigi Pirandello - A One Act Play with Live Southern Italian Folk Music. Produced and performed by ImproNati – Italian Theater Company directed by Chiara Durazzini. The show is in standard Italian (with optional English surtitles) and is interpreted by eleven Italian actors with music performed live by 3 musicians.

The comedy is very well known in the Italian culture, and the action is set in the Sicilian countryside of the early 1900s among olive-pickers whose lives are defined by physical labor and where the main character is obsessed with property and possession and ultimately ridiculed by it.

Following the performance of La Giara, we will have a conversation with the performers and audience members about the role of theatre and the arts in the translation of culture. The talkback will be hosted by Lia Capotorto, CAMD '20, as part of her capstone thesis which examines intercultural communication and theater as well as how storytelling acts as a universal language for human connection
