Inventing Life

a docu-film by Teatro Patalo

SUNDAY MARCH 28th at 12 noon


Inventing life is a doc-film about Tell Tale, a theatre-dance piece that engages on stage the authors and their two children. A piece of life on stage, that should have opened in California and Oregon in April 2020, remaining on the verge of our common uncertain future. An engaging, poetic work about the unfinished: a search to elevate the present to a mutual encounter between distant human beings.

The documentary has been filmed in theaters, locations in wild nature and in abandoned spaces: a theater company working in the absence of live performing. A proof of necessity. A dialogue with nature and with a theatre crowded by absents.
