Teatro Paravento - Svizzera “La Gallina dalle uova d’oro” ovvero Alla conquista dell’Amazzonia




Text and direction Miguel Ángel Cienfuegos
With Luisa Ferroni
Aesop's fable is the cue to talk about the exploitation of the South American forest; a serious subject, presented in an amusing way. Gallini, the protagonist, during a macroeconomics lesson, hears his lecturer talking about a hen that lays golden eggs in the Amazon. He sets off in search of it! When he gets there, he behaves like a real cunning and ruthless conqueror: he tricks the natives, bribes, cuts down hundreds of millenary trees in order to open a way to get hold of the hen's gold.
