On Tuesday 30 and Wednesday 31 at the Teatro dei Rinnovati in Siena Emigrants are staged , based on a text by Slawomir Mrozek and under the direction of Jerzy Stuhr. The show is a production by Fondazione Teatro Due and a project by laLut – a research and theater production center, promoted within the Playing Identities project of the University of Siena.
Thirty-five years after the first performance, Jerzy Stuhr signs the direction of a new staging of Emigrants , who saw him as a leading actor (in the role of AA) in the unforgettable production directed by Wajda in the mid-70s. Two characters, a farmer and an intellectual, XX and AA, in an underground space crossed by sewer pipes. Each with their own baggage of objects and nightmares while real life flows over them. It is in this secluded microcosm that the theatrical game takes place based on a close dialogue, on subtle cruelties and affectionate accents hidden among the folds of a continuous quarrel between XX and AA, emigrated from a ‘limited democracy’ country
