Mariangela Gualtieri, poet and playwright of the theatre company Teatro Valdoca, investigates the force field's tension where the so-called "necessary" theatre reveals itself. Something standing "before the name and the surname" breaks into the stage: the actor's speech is the Ego's defeat. In that Void, we can experience - through despoliation instead of addition - the essence of the character who lies in the depth of that same Void. The actor is the language's Bishop, he stands inside the archetypal Language itself; the groundwork is useful to dismantle the actor's "technique", which leads him to the stage with his true essence: being an ancient and contemporary heart, a laughing beast, a wounded human, a silent power. In this way, the one and only language to the heights of both the animal and the Super-human - the poetical verse - will be kept by the actor himself in a state of perpetual rebirth.
