An extraordinary debut for the two architects in the sign of the classic scenes have created which will move the heroes of the 45th Cycle Classic Performances, scheduled at the Greek Theater in Siracusa from May 9 to June 21.
“Reality – comments Massimiliano Fuksas – is what we see in the mirror or what is reflected? We did not want or thought ever to resolve the dilemma. There is always time to acquire the magic necessary to understand the origins and the core emotions. Beyond the image, the true point of departure. ”
For the architect the element of reflection and inspiration for the design of the set was the horizon. “A horizon very simple – he adds – who speaks of the cathartic and what was the landscape, place, and action, for the conscience of the spectators, not today but yesterday.” As the landscape and the scenery have changed over time, the intention contained in the set design is the reconstruction of a lost horizon, staged by a “concave blade” that reflects what is going around, which involves the public, which reflects and invites reflection.
