ALFA
notes on the manliness issue

by ROBERTO CASTELLO
in collaboration with ALESSANDRA MORETTI, MARIANO NIEDDU, ILENIA ROMANO, FRANCESCA ZACCARIA

After “In girum imus nocte and consumimur igni” hypnotic dance and the coreocabaret of  “Trattato di economia”, Roberto Castello takes a different approach with his new work “Alfa  - notes on the manliness issue”.

It is a show where, within a traditional setting, words, dance and live music are mixed into a simple and unusual dramaturgical form which could be just called theatrical.
Issue of the show is male identity and its construction, or rather a reflection on the power and the education of those who are supposed to occupy a dominant role: a dynamic in which the female role, we will see, may have a main function.


“When one looks around, one naturally tends to think that being a European white heterosexual Christian male over fifty years who is reasonably healthy, practices sports, is well-educated, with healthy adult offspring, is professionally rather successful and has no serious economic problems is not exactly an unfavourable condition, especially if one considers how much pain in the arse, discrimination, harassment and violence all those who lack even just one of the above-mentioned requirements are exposed and often subjected to by my social category.
However, belonging to an exclusive standard still means belonging to a standard – which, by definition, is an unnatural condition. In short, at least as far as I myself am concerned, having managed to be a European white heterosexual Christian male who is reasonably healthy, practices sports, is well-educated, with healthy adult offspring, is professionally rather successful and has no serious economic problems is the result of a process as spontaneous and natural as that of feet binding in Chinese concubines in the 19th century. Which means that I have the suspicion that I have learned, in time and with patient self-learning, to appear something different form myself in such convincing manner that, practically, I don’t even notice it myself anymore.”
