In HARDCORE DIARIES Mick Foley will take fans right inside a hardcore match, vividly recreating his experiences, and revealing how mentally and physically preparing for this extremely challenging sport has helped him become the legend he is today.
Nel 1972, al culmine di una crisi che è insieme professionale e artistica, Goldoni lascia Venezia per un contratto biennale alla Comédie Italienne di Parigi. L’impresa non è facile: attori diffidenti, pubblico indifferente, un contesto completamente diverso da quello in cui è nato il suo teatro. Dall’esigenza di incontrare il gusto dei francesi, nasce Il ventaglio, una commedia agile e festosa, al cui centro non sta un personaggio, ma un oggetto: un ventaglio, pegno di due innamorati, la cui perdita scatena una serie di equivoci, gelosie e ripicche, che si risolvono in un lieto fine. Un divertente gioco scenico orchestrato con magistrale perizia.
