Abstract

We live immersed in a swarm of interactions where the boundary between public and private is fading, we want an immediate response in every sphere of everyday life, we perceive the weakness of the online ties and the urgency to reconstruct solid forms of collectivity. Even in response to these mutations, several «unidentified theatrical objects» have been seen recently, using a Wu Ming's collective expression. Spectacular hybrid formats rethinking theatre's traditional elements: the demarcation between actor and character, the ordering authority of the direction, the dramaturgy as a stabilizing element. The paper analyzes the elements of some theatrical works that lead to new dramatic practices and models, from the point of view of text composition and stage writing, focusing on Kepler-452's Il giardino dei ciliegi. Trent'anni di felicità in comodato d'uso (2018). This show is probably the most known recent example of writing with the reality, part of a possible model of a "neoepic" theatre.
