I vicini

by Fausto Paravidino

with Fausto Paravidino, Iris Fusetti, Christina Toth

After being a guest of the first edition of Italian Playwrights Project, Fausto Paravidino comes back to New York to embark on a new endeavor, a play to be written and staged during the second half of 2017. His writing process usually originates on scene, with actors directly testing the play over the course of a workshop.

Italian Playwrights Project– conceived by Umanism NY and Martin E. Segal Theatre Center at CUNY, in association with the Italian Cultural Institute of New York, proudly promotes Paravidino’s writing process dedicating a special focus on reading, this time in Italian after last year reading in english by the translation of Jane House, through a staged reading of excerpts of I Vicini, a play which was selected for translation and English publication in 2015.

Special thanks to Kairos Italy Theater for supporting the workshop.

“Neighbors” I Vicini – says Fausto Paravidino – is a piece on our fears. On our imaginary fears, on our real fears. On our real fears that are often our imaginary fears. In a rarefied and suspended atmosphere and suspended, two young couples meet and clash between the domestic walls.

Fausto Paravidino
an actor, director, and playwright, was born in Genova, grew up in a small village in northern Italy, and now lives in Rome. His plays include Trinciapollo, Gabriele, 2 Fratelli, La Malattia della Famiglia M, Natura Morta in un Fosso, Peanuts (Connections, National Theatre, London), Genoa 01 (Royal Court Theatre, London), Morbid, Exit, Il Caso B, Il Diario di Mariapia, I Vicini (Thèatre National du Bretange, France), Il Macello di Giobbe (Teatro Valle Occupato), and They Were in My Field (Royal Court Theatre). Several of his plays were broadcast on Italian public radio. The movie he wrote and directed, Texas, was presented at the 2005 Venice film festival.
