HIC SUNT LEONESSE by Bogdan Georgescu

On the 13th September, in the frame of Short Theatre Festival, will be presented the outcome of the residency of the Romanian author Bogdan Georgescu: HIC SUNT LEONESSE.

HIC SUNT LEONESSE – Ambra Angiolini, Raffaella Carrà, Amanda Lear, Iva Zanicchi, Heather Parisi – the legendary figures of the Italian television in the 90’s. Hic sunt Leonesse is an Active Art queer feminist performance. During the 90’s, in Romania, the most watched foreign TV channels were the Italian ones. Together with a group of Romanian women living in Italy, we’ll create a biographical retrospective on the imagined Italy, as it was delivered through TV shows by the feminine icons of that time and the realities discovered once their dreamed new life started in the peninsula. We will explore perspectives regarding women, macho-ism, queerness, work, depression etc. influenced by Italian television.
