IL MIO TEMPO takes pace in a hotel where everyday different languages mix together and just like any other day, we have customer coming and staying in.
“Where is it? When is it?” We don’t know.
This is the hotel for the people who is looking for “my time.”
After the first step of creation of IL MIO TEMPO, produced by Fondazione Teatro della Toscana and presented at Teatro Era, Pontedera on September 2015, director Takahiro Fujita get together again with four actors of his company and four Italian actors, to develop the performance in a three-weeks artistic residency at Sainokuni Saitama Art Theater in Tokyo.
The performance is presented as work-in-progress and will then premiere in Japan in Autumn 2017
As in Fujita previous productions indeed, the director does not start from a text that already exists but he creates it day by day interviewing the actors on topics he would like to include in the performance.
The actors are guided by Fujita to detail and retrace childhood memories, images and sensations. These stories, elaborated and stripped of any clear biographic reference, are mixed and edited together till the performance is presented to the audience.
IL MIO TEMPO also represents an opportunity for both Italian and Japanese actors to find a new way to communicate on stage, and to go further the linguistic boundaries and the cultural gap.
