Italian Play of 20,000 Leagues at Baran Theater

Italian Play of 20,000 Leagues at Baran Theater

The Italian group Teatro Potlach has brought a stage adaption of the novel ‘20,000 Leagues Under the Sea’ written by French novelist, poet and playwright Jules Verne (1828-1905).
The play is underway at Tehran’s Baran Theater Complex. It opened on September 16 and will run through September 23 twice in the evenings (at 7 and 9 pm), ISNA reported.
The play is directed by Pino Di Buduo, the founder and director of the Potlach theater group based in Fara Sabina outside Rome. He has staged the play in 27 other countries.
The hour-long play is the first international performance of Baran Theater Complex. It is spoken in Italian, with Persian captions.
The show features Dolby sound and the screens showing three dimensional views of the sea and its depths and will offer a new experience for audience.
At the beginning the play offers a synopsis of the current circumstances: “Upon the emergence of a monstrous creature in the water, a science professor is assigned to confront the monster that has drowned many ships and passengers.”
To tell the story of the aquatic adventure of Captain Nemo and Professor Pierre Aronax, Buduo uses digital projection and new-generation LED lights.
He creates a dream-like setting, as though deep beneath the ocean. A wealth of color washes over the hall. One can spot shrimp fish, catfish, jackfish, harlequin shrimps, sand tiger sharks, sweetlips and a variety of coral. The scenography envelopes viewers in joy.
As Professor Aronax says, “A strange twilight world opened up before me, and I felt as the first man to set foot on another planet, an intruder in this mystic garden of the deep.”
