The Open Couple (Coppia aperta, quasi spalancata) by Italian couple Dario Fo and Franca Rame, who have created examples of dissident, revolutionary and sarcastic ‘people’s theatre’ in every work they have produced, especially the Women’s Plays series, is at the festival as a Podacto production. The sound theatre project Podacto revives the once indispensable tradition of radio theatre by moving the theatre into a podcast environment. The plays of the company, which describes itself as an ‘ear theatre’, have become a digital play archive of sorts and are entrusted to the voice performances of the most competent names of their generation. Produced exclusively for the festival with quality sound design, The Open Couple features the interpretations of Alican Yücesoy and Esra Dermancıoğlu. A part of Dario Fo and Franca Rame’s unique Women’s Plays series, The Open Couple is a striking play with its feminist perspective, full of fun and sarcasm that cross-examines the inequality between men and women in the institution of marriage through sexuality. The play reminds men that ‘when an open couple is open on both sides, there’s a draught’ while it also sends a flashy salute to the countless women who have trapped themselves in marriage over the years without even realizing it, inspiring women to open the doors of their lives.
