Stefania Rocca: Eva’s Mother

Coming April 11 and 12 to the Auditorium Parco della Musica is Ennio Morricone's "La madre di Eva," a show by and starring Stefania Rocca. The starting story, loosely inspired by Silvia Ferreri's novel of the same name, a finalist for the 2018 Strega Prize, is that of a boy born in a female body in which he feels like a prisoner who intends to go through a transition process and a mother who does not want to see, partly out of fear and partly because she is stuck in her desire to be the perfect mother. It is a generational and cultural conflict, two languages using similar words but with different meanings as is always the case between different generations. "I chose to use different languages beyond theatrical staging to better tell those moments of experience that appear and disappear from memory seamlessly to compose that emotional puzzle of two antithetical existences. In carrying out this project, I have met so many parents and so many children who are going through this journey, singular and different for each of them. In the end when a conflict comes together it happens by listening to the language of the heart, the only one that allows us to value differences. After all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder," explains Stefania Rocca.
