"ASSASSINS FOR ONE NIGHT" selected to participate in "La Biennale di Venezia Marathon of the Unexpected"

ASSASSINS FOR ONE NIGHT a Bistoury Physical Theatre Production, selected to participate in "La Biennale di Venezia Marathon of the Unexpected".

24 June from 3:00 p.m. > 8:00 p.m.
Teatro Piccolo Arsenale


“Assassins for one Night” is a multimedia dance-performance piece combined with video installation. Throughout its 15 minutes of duration, with two dancers and a musician live on stage, the piece will incarnate and recreate the life of three siblings obsessed with the task of making order out of chaos.
“Assassins for one Night” bases its inspiration on the play “Night of the Assassins” by Cuban playwright José Triana. It narrates a struggle against the constant restrictions imposed upon us by a system without any real power, a rebellion against repression, including that which we bring upon ourselves. At times, this struggle walks the path of reality, while other times it delves into rite and fantasy.
Through dance, theatre, music and projections, three characters deconstruct the obstacles that limit their individuality through the use of imagination and fantasy.  Alexey Taran (Director of ERE. Bistoury Physical Theater) and Carla Forte (Screenwriter and Filmmaker) are the intellectual authors of this night, during which the act of becoming an assassin will become a liberating escapade for both the participants on stage and for the audience.
It is a cyclical play where the characters will indefinitely repeat the act of symbolically murdering their parents in order to attain individual liberty. The piece will return us to the place where we began; they are empty rites based on words rather than actions, where the characters do not have possibilities nor alternatives. The game does not allow any solution, and for them the only exit is the absence of an exit. One of the siblings says: “oh, my sisters, if love could...only love...because in spite of it all, I love you.” “Assassins for One Night” is a continuous and interminable game that serves as a ritual to exorcize the demons of the crime.
