BUTTERFLIES (FARFALLE) by Emanuele Aldrovandi, Translated by Carlotta Brentan, Directed by Jay Stern with Annie Watkins and Danielle Sacks, Sarah Edkins (Set Design), Ali Hall (Lighting Design)
Winner of the Mario Fratti Award 2016.
SYNOPSIS – The story of two sisters whose favorite pastime is a dangerous game: whichever holds a butterfly hairpin can ask the other one to do anything she wants. “Butterflies” is a fantastical and uncompromising tale of personal growth among sisterly love and sisterly rivalry in which self-discovery is not always accompanied by greater understanding of the other person.
A co-production by The Tank, Jay Stern and Kairos Italy Theater.
