This production breathes new life into the small-scale marionette theatre seen in Fili. Amortale is a symbiosis of tragedy and clowning, opera and marionettes, slapstick and melancholy, circus and simplicity.
The big and the small are constantly mixed up together, and the most trivial of life’s burdens are dramatically magnified to the scale of a major tragedy. On the other hand, the great drama of life shrinks to ludicrously recognisable proportions.
This is the primal power of the old travelling fairground theatre, which is experienced rather than understood. The show already starts at the pre-war variety bar at the front of the tent. What starts as background music rolls over the bar with increasing generosity, until the ladies and gentlemen of the audience take their seats for the grand ‘théâtre mécanique’.
Substantial but fragile stage scenery the Ronaldo family has kept for years envelops an imprudent game of love, overshadowed by the guilt burdening those who once bit into the forbidden fruit.
In this performance the clown has to make way for great tragedy.
But in every expression of reality, the comical always reveals itself, because mankind is quite simply very funny. And thus the way back to paradise is never found, but is rediscovered over and over again through a chance joke…
