Al teatro l'Idea di Sambuca di Sicilia va in scena sabato 30 aprile (ore 20:30), per il cartellone della stagione, "Adagio: carneficina in un unico atto" di Sergio Beercock, con Noa Di Venti e Sergio Beercock.
 Un uomo e una donna, giovanissimi, su un terrazzo, parlano per note secche, esplosive, a volte si ripetono come ritornelli, che escono da voci ogni volta diverse, come in una sinfonia. Uno scambio di angosce per il passato, che si vanno rivelando, verità, paure per un futuro con il quale potrebbero non avere i mezzi per confrontarsi.

Sicily: Culture and Conquest review – the original treasure island


Eppure gli altri, il mondo, vedono in noi molto di più:

The Guardian : vede nella Sicilia l'antica isola del tesoro 
A

rchimedes had his eureka moment in a bath in Syracuse in Sicily. Antipholus, protagonist of Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors, comes from the very same place. Cicero described Syracuse as the greatest and most beautiful of all Greek cities, when it was not so much an outpost as a grand imperial metropolis. Consider this when you’re passing through this dusty city on the glittering Sicilian shores: it was once as large and powerful as ancient Athens.
The truth of this becomes apparent in an enthralling new show at the British Museum. Sicily: Culture and Conquest sweeps aside all the tourist cliches of beaches, lemons, the Mafia and Montalbano to reveal an island occupied by so many different cultures – Greeks and Romans, Muslim Arabs and Africans, the Normans, the Spanish and eventually the mainland Italians – that it is well described as a kind of Mediterranean America.
A marble inscription in the magnificent Palatine Chapel in Palermo appears in Greek, Latin, Arabic, French and the Judeo-Arabic spoken by medieval Sicilian Jews. And anyone visiting this show will see Greek gods, Phoenician heroes and Roman soldiers, raging bulls, mythical sea creatures and Moorish designs, yet all with a most curious twist. None of them look quite as you might expect. It is as if Sicily itself prevails above all its different migrant cultures, giving everything its own special character.
There are marvels everywhere you look, from the opening gallery with its prehistoric cave carvings and images of the Necropolis at Pantalica, each chamber hacked directly out of a towering cliff, resembling some fabulous modernist architecture: tiers of golden cubicles in a facade of white limestone.
