International Street Theatre Festival ANA DESETNICA
Ensemble Nodi DONKEY (L'Asino), Italy
Donkey is a poetic performance talking about a little man who decides to revolt.
It is a tale told through a series of images of loneliness. Although it is set in timelessness,
it takes the viewers and the performers through a number of suggestive images of
betrayal committed by the humanity and the state, to the spectacular ending with
symbolic death and immediate deliverance. The story of the Donkey is narrated by five
characters on stilts. It is all in all an attractive street theatre performance in the most
noble meaning of the word – it is created for public squares and streets, and puts to use
the specific architecture and atmosphere of the urban environment. The performance
is in Italian but knowledge of Italian is not necessary.
