Per Edith Piaf, by Nathalie Mentha  (Photographer: Maria)On 13th at CRIPA Nathalie Mentha performes Per Edith Piaf, with the direction and the technical assistance by Pino Di Buduo, from Teatro Potlach in Italy. This performance is a musical journey in France of the 1930s and 1950s through Edith Piaf's songs - stories of lives in the underworld of the French gangsters, stories of women in love, stories of passion, of dreams, of memories. The theme, the soul which ties all the stories together, and maybe even more Edith Piaf's own soul, seems to be: Whatever happens, don't ever stop believing in love. Read more

Bruna Gusberti  - Out or in? (Photographer: Jyoti)Bruna Gusberti at the Tandtidhatri festival presented at Sri Aurobindo Audittorium, Bharat Nivas in Pavilion of Indian Culture in International Zone act of a woman who reflects on whether to remain closed within her feelings, dreams and sorrows, or not, so as to feel alive. Again minimalistic approach as in props as in the act itself, which tends to tell much more in the silence of "in" than maybe on the "out" tries, finally crosses "in" with heart beat and flowery umbilical cord broken off the stage into the light of love.

Cristina Castrillo (Photographer: Jyoti)"Umbral" or Threshold was offered to the audience by Cristina Castrillo at the stage of Sri Aurobindo Auditorium, Bharat Nivas, at Pavilion of Indian Culture in International Zone. Minimalistic approach of mono play simply tells the story of actress's life, or better glimpses of it, the way she perceived it, sensed it rather than that really was. Without doubt her trace in theater is huge as she dedicated all her efforts to the research of elements which are basic for an actor, who is always at the heart of the inventive process. Read more
