PIER PAOLO PASOLINI 1975-2015

Theatrical Performance

Forty years ago, Pier Paolo Pasolini was murdered on the outskirts of Rome, under circumstances that still remain unclear today. His multifaceted personality as a poet, a filmmaker and a novelist, made him the public intellectual par excellence, as proven by the range of guests Casa Italiana at NYU has invited over the years to talk about him: Patty Smith, Ninetto Davoli, James Ivory, just to name a few. On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of Pier Paolo Pasolini's death, Kairos Italy Theater (Casa Italiana Theater Company in Residence) presents a celebration of his life in New York and of his influence over the work of future generations. With the participation of Maria Gabriella Maione (actress in Pasolini's Decameron). The evening will feature a reading focused on a conversation between Oriana Fallaci and Pasolini when Pasolini came to New York to present a film at the New York Film Festival, followed by an installation of images and poetry coordinated by Laura Caparrotti and poet Dave Johnson. The installation will feature members of KIT together with young New York poets. While the actors read Pasolini poems, the poets will present poems inspired by Pasolini. In the background Rome and New York will embrace the great artist.
