Thinking of Buzzati

Thinking of Buzzati

As KIT Friends know, in the Fall of 2012 KIT is presenting 4 monologues by Dino Buzzati, a most respected writer (and painter and reporter and intellectual) of Italy. The monologues are all about women: Velia, Irma, Luisa and Iris. His monologues are always painted in dark, and they tasted something of a crime-horror story and sometime of an ironic-sad-pathetic story.

They were cheesy dressed, his hair very oily, her chicks very red, both images very surreal… and in that very busy bar, the man put the Tarots on the table and started to ‘see’ the woman life and future… sometime his cellular was ringing, with a music that was even more surreal, an old song from the 70s, and he was -while talking- looking who’s calling and then deciding not to answer.

Poi, qualche giorno fa, ho ricevuto l’email che allego a seguire e mi sono detta che forse chiaccherare all’aperto poteva anche essere utile e dunque da oggi seguiranno, di tanto in tanto, blog in italiano, in inglese e perche’ no bilingue… blog con ospiti e blog di ospiti… e chissa’ che qualche altra persona, come Simona che scrive qua sotto, non si senta ispirata e segua anche lei la sua passione… Buona Lettura… DA SIMONA R.: Ciao Laura, mi sono appena iscritta al vostro gruppo e curiosando ho letto di come è nata la tua compagnia. Ti scrivo perché le tue parole sulla scelta del nome e sul mito di Kairos, che non conoscevo, mi hanno colpita! Suonano come l’inattesa spinta a seguire il mio istinto e ripartire per NY, lasciando la mia comoda vita in Italia. Anche se inconsapevolmente, mi sei stata di aiuto!... Read more
