About Manuel on Stage

Manuel on Stage – variable play

To open : lift Seta cima2.jpeg

"Manuel on Stage" is a self reflective project that follows a second cycle of my writing (of plays, prose and poems). The first cycle ended with Actueur, three small texts of « nor theatre » with which I have closed, as a matter of speech, the cycle of my "dramatic writing"; after which writing became, if I may say so, more instrumental to constitute a canvas for a series of thematic plays about erotism, death, power, or the notion of being a foreigner. With "Manuel on Stage" things "jump" this time in many different directions simultaneously. Including the possibility of "going back" through a sort of "manual (about how to be-come) on stage", using all the time all my previous plays and other texts but also any source that may be found interesting to bring to Manuel on Stage.
