Pergine’s girls are about to lose control
After big cities like Genoa and Rome, now it’s up to Pergine! The public call is open until June 25.
What are we talking about?
“Pergine’s GIRLS ARE LOSING CONTROL. SOCIETY IS AFRAID OF THEM. THE END IS BLUE “is a project for tough, courageous girls, who believe in the impossible and who have a great desire to get involved. The project is for girls who like to act, sing or play (or who just like the idea of being able to do it).
The director Eleonora Pippo looks for a group of brave girls to form the temporary local company Ragazzine Pergine 2018, a fantastic opportunity to make a new experience and be the protagonists of an original performance.
Starting from the homonymous comic drama by Ratigher [read the comics], winner of the prestigious Micheluzzi Award for Best Comic at Naples COMICON 2015, the project involves the creation of temporary local companies made up of girls between the ages of 13 and 18, who in record time of seven days will work together with the director to create a show based on the peculiarities of the girls involved and will make use of the active participation of the audience.
The work will be presented on 13 July 2018 at 20:30 at the Don Bosco Theater.
