Kobane shouts on stage: at the Bellini the show based on the comic of Zerocalcare

In the Bellini Theater from 10 to 22 May “Kobane calling on stage” will be performed from Kobane calling by Zerocalcare, published by BAO Publishing. A performance that does not make the war spectacular, but tells thanks to a highly original mix of languages. It is a real act of love of the theater for the poetic and very comic world of the author, it is not just the transposition of a graphic novel, but an unpublished work that, starting from the pages of the comic strip, transforms them on the staging in an authentic short circuit of emotions, as it tells with merciless lightness the brutal truth of a conflict that is all too often forgotten.
