“In the 15th century, Shakespeare wrote about the disappearance of the Dukes of York in the Tower and produced “Richard the Third”. Today we are hostages of the euro currency and we don’t mint coins: we’ll think of something. Chekhov killed Treplev while Nina languished on stage. In Syria, thousands die while the UN drink tea: we’ll find something. Perrault killed Little Red Riding Hood at the hands of a bloodthirsty wolf. Richard Dresser did not allowed the use of“Below the Belt” copyrighted work and a translator made a complaint to he Author’s Rights Association: we had to find something. In theater, all metaphors can be found between a “classic” with more than 75 years old and what is actually happening today. Then everything depends on the relevance of the metaphor. And on the quality of costume design. “Talita” is an essay on the need to do new things, when everything around us looks old.” Written and directed by Rodrigo Santos
