Elettra or the fall of the Masks

“Today like yesterday, theater is responsibility, awareness of civil, ethical, behavioral problems, commitment to personal choices that can be traumatic but which must be considered inescapable. Today as in the past, theater is the acquisition and governance of means of expression, the affirmation of human conquests, the exaltation of individual forces and of corporate needs. Today like yesterday, theater is freedom, a struggle to be architects of one’s own destiny, a search for the meaning of existence, the mediation of questions often destined to remain unanswered, a refusal to be oppressed, a disdain for oppression. “(Prof. Giusto Monaco)
