The knowledge machinery

What’s behind Repubblica? ”Everything starts with a white card, where you write outlines, names, ideas, words which are then turned into a journalistic initiative, an article, an interview”. Ezio Mauro, editor of Repubblica, starts in this way to tell about how the newspaper is produced. The monologue lasts about an hour, partly theatre and partly conference, under the title “The knowledge machinery”.
Elastica curated the staging which accompanies his speech: the design and construction of multimedia scenes, the concept of stage space, directing the large images accompanying the narration, lights, timing the talk.
The newspaper ‘factory’ thus becomes a true theatre performance, which the audience follows, hanging on Ezio Mauro’s every word.
At the Piccolo in Milan, Teatro San Carlo in Naples, Ariosto in Reggio Emilia, at the Holden School in Turin, at Teatro Massimo in Palermo… and many more will follow.
