Perché non io? / Why Not Me?

Jana Svobodová & coll. / Teatro NEST, Fondazione Campania dei Festival, Neapol, Archa Theatre

World premiere: November 16 & 17, 2022 at Archa Theatre, Prague as part of the AKCENT Festival.
Premiere at NEST Teatro in Naples on November 25, 2022 as  part of the Campania Teatro Festival Quartieri di Vita.

A documentary theatre performance.

There are nine of them. They live in Naples. They love theatre. They've auditioned for Sorrentino's films, had roles in Netflix series, and were awarded an Italian Oscar for directing a short film.

Alessandra works in a juice bar, Domenico polishes cars in the family business, Daniela works as a cashier in a pizza restaurant until late at night, Luigi teaches high-school economics, Lorenzo plays football for money, Alessandro is a DJ at a disco. 

They want to stand out, to be the best, to be seen. They want to live their dream. 

Nine young artists from the eastern, poor part of Naples. Nine personal stories in powerful metaphorical images. 

In December 2021, Jana Svobodová arrived at the invitation of the  Fondazione Campania dei Festival, within the framework of the project Quartieri di Vita, to work with young people from the Teatro Nest district in East Naples.

The young artists underwent an "extreme listening" workshop. It is a method that leads artists to independent creation based on the principle of mutual respect. The actors on the stage themselves control the lights and sound, they decide when they will speak. The text was created in the form of interviews with the director and will be performed in the Neapolitan dialect.
