NOISE IN THE WATERS AT LA MAMA
Marco Martinelli’s Noise in the Waters arrives in New York after an intense national and international tour with the acknowledgement of patronage by Amnesty International and insertion into the project “Face à Face” (which puts on the most interesting contemporary Italian texts translated into French). The English translation by Thomas Simpson, who teaches Italian literature at the Northwestern University of Chicago, was published in 2011 in the online university magazine "California Italian Studies” edited by Albert Ascoli. In 2014 it will be published in book form by Bordighera Press of New York.

HERESY OF HAPPINESS IN NEW YORK
Heresy of Happiness in New York (Eresia della felicità a New York), directed by Marco Martinelli will involve in a workshop teenagers from the Manhattan and Harlem – students from the La Scuola d'Italia Guglielmo Marconi and from Corpus Christi School, in collaboration with IACE – and will conclude with a final event open to the public.
Heresy of Happiness in New York is centred on the non-scuola (non-school), a theatre-educational experience with teenagers. In 2011, as part of the Santarcangelo 41 International Theatre Festival (artistic director Ermanna Montanari), a new passage of this overwhelming wave of the non-scuola was created: Heresy of Happiness, a “choral” workshop with 200 adolescents from all over the world again under Martinelli’s direction.

synopsis

Er is a 2020 film by Marco Martinelli that extracts a “golden section” from his archive of work created over four decades with Ermanna Montanari.

Er is a homage to Ermanna and her art as actress and author ever in search of new forms, sounds, voices. Images from their productions are graft to a long walk taken by Ermanna, seen from behind, striding along a road in her native Romagnol countryside. Scenes from plays emerge and flower in counterpoint to her step. Er takes us into the mind of Ermanna, evoking the combination of errancy and error at the root of Platonic thought.

Errancy—wandering freely—is at the root of a poetics of making/unmaking/re-making ever present in the theatre of Ermanna and Marco: always on the road, a mise en scène that is a mise en vie.
 
director’s Note

This film was born from a desire to give thanks for the extraordinary art of Ermanna, her visage and voice; to reciprocate the gift she has given me over forty years of life and theatre together.
 The key to the film is the journey undertaken by Er in Book Ten of Plato’s Republic: Er is a warrior who, dying, descends into underworld together with other souls, where he is told that he will return to life only after having first traveled throughout the realm of death so that he later may tell the living what awaits them. I have found the perfect myth to express this actress’s practice of plunging into the unconscious, encountering the demons and angels who inhabit what Ermanna calls “my condominium”. Ermanna, a rare name for a woman, derives from Hermann, German for “warrior”.
 Around Ermanna’s walk along the country roads of her native Romagna, I have woven, together with Francesco Tedde, scenes from films in Teatro delle Albe’s archive, images shot by other directors, fragments of spectacle from Siamo asini o pedanti? (1989) to Pantani (2012).
