THE VOICES OF CITY OF MYTHS – LISTEN TO THE PODCAST
Available on teatrodeiborgia.it on the main podcast platforms.
City of Myths is a metropolitan poetic dream,
a trilogy of three stories: Medea on the Streets, Heracles the Invisible Man and Philoctetes the Forgotten.
In these plays Medea, Heracles and Philoctetes are three contemporary heroes, but unlike the heroes from above, they do not descend, they are not children of the gods. On the contrary, they are heroes of the marginal world, of the periphery, who tell us about their real tragedies: prostitution, falling into poverty, being abandoned.
In creating City of Myths, Elena Cotugno and Gianpiero Borgia work constantly with social workers, health workers, doctors and psychologists. Collectively they are the foundations of what you see onstage by actively contributing to the shows while they are on the road.
The podcast gives a voice to all the people who take part in the City of Myths project, and over nine episodes it tells you about the real heroes of this metropolitan poetic dream.
