Watching Pippo Delbono’s latest work, we find ourselves at the beginning of a visionary journey, at the threshold of a sequence of frames, in the body of a dramaturgy that shows us, without holding back, the truth that folly uncovers. Dopo La Battaglia (After The Battle) is a composition that opens wide the doors of our existential darkness, in a continuous flow that pierces through the void it has unveiled. Through the rhythm of the music and the dance, finding in the words and poetical verses the harmony between language and emotion, we witness present pain transfigured into faith in the future. Delbono stands by his companions, urging them onto the neutral scenery, a physical and mental grey zone, a crossroads of our imaginative world, where we see figures of our real world flowing through, where the misery and vices of a captive, blind people take form and come to life with motions that become mechanical, automatic. The words of authors such as Antonin Artaud, Franz Kafka, Alda Merini, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Walt Whitman, Rainer Maria Rilke, Alejandra Pizarnik, re-written by Pippo Delbono, resonate in a ritual that is, at once, sacred and secular. Original music composed and performed live by Alexander Balanescu. An expanding theatrical language, traced by bodies and texts, by different forms of saying and representing, by pitches and tones turned into action by the music and dance, by performers who turn words into flesh, in a theatre that becomes flesh of its own time, and of the times we live in.
