THEATER AND NEW TECHNOLOGIES PLAY
TITLE: “FIORI per”
“If ignorance is bliss, it is folly to be wise”. Thomas Gray
FIORI per – the dramaturgy – is freely inspired by the science fiction text “Flowers for Algernon” that the writer Daniel Keyes wrote in 1966.
It is the story of Carlo Gordo, a mentally disabled young man selected for a scientific experiment that will significantly raise his IQ. Carlo’s fate is intertwined with that of Algernon, a white laboratory mouse that has undergone the same operation and who competes with him inside a labyrinth.
#We are Carlo
The complexity of its vicissitudes before and after the operation gives us a universal image: the human being is trapped in an existential labyrinth in which he gropes like “a human being born blind who has been given the opportunity to see the light “. Each step of this labyrinth corresponds to new knowledges and skills, but in the case of Carlo, the much desired intelligence, will he be able to make him happy? The labyrinth is the human attempt to discover and recognize his own motivations, but neither intelligence nor emotions they are safe guides. A touching story that highlights the contradictions between care and justice, scientific and ethical experimentation, thought and emotion. A journey into the human being and his intricate existential journey, created on stage through the creative use of new technologies that return the various trials to be overcome and the continuous inner research carried out by the protagonist in a desperate attempt to become a person.
