Passion selon Jean de Antonio Tarantino – pièce de théâtre et états de folie...

PASSION SELON JEAN    by    Antonio Tarantino,

The theater play about a states of madness

 

The project will be on stage in France in a little less than a month, and just started a crowd-funding initiative to raise the last remaining few $ necessary to make this a reality.
 
Though the dates are set, and the piece is finalised now, with rehearsals undergone, so we are in need of your help to be able to buy the remaining necessary décor, advertisement for the play, and be able to pay the artists and technicians which have for now given most of their time for free towards the production (which certainly goes to show how much they believe in the project!).

Synopsis
The topic of the theater piece is the daily journey of two male characters – “I-him”, a schizophrenic who takes himself for Christ and that of John, his nurse, who is lost, thanks to his dedication, in the meanders of the institutional psychiatric hierarchy.

With ferocious humor and a furious stream of words, Antonio Tarantino discusses their daily journey through which he traces the stages of the Passion. The play thus depicts the two beings here linked by their fate and the confinement, these two left-behind, the nurse John and the innocent “I-him”, who perform with simplicity and humanity and ... even sometimes, joy, the daily journey - a daily ritual, a repetitive Mystery - that they manage to reinvent together as a way to escape.

This artistic initiative aims at drawing attention to a dangerous topical phenomenon; the tendency of our contemporary society to normalize all otherness, to eliminate any anomaly ... the unclassifiable, the "edges of road" and "edges of line", to eradicate all those who do not fit in boxes, all those who do not keep the social pact.

This plays results from a strong desire to provide a fresh perspective on the border-line individuals: open, funny, touching sometimes, but never condescending and how we embrace them and gain from the experience we share – sometimes losing some of our apparent securing sanity in the process, for the best. Mental patients are recognized as individuals in their own right through the lens of what they bring to the world - their intrinsically singular and poetic view on life.
