Adapted from Robert Louis Stevenson’s Novel
Directed by Laura Pasetti
An interactive theatre piece with SONGS, FIGHTS and LAUGHTER, but also INTRIGUE, BETRAYAL and TWISTS.
A boy of today receives the visit of four pirates from 1750’s in search of Captain Flint’s treasure. He will start an amazing journey on board the “Hispaniola” and will find himself thrust into a surreal world where nothing is as it seems.
Stevenson wrote Treasure Island after drawing a map while playing with his stepson on a rainy afternoon. Drawing the map inspired the creation of these legendary characters.
Imagination is fundamental to understand the entire story: the ability to visualize a parallel reality, to manifest our deepest desires and fears and face the other self who hides under our socially acceptable behavior.
A great adventure at sea is waiting for Jim, however an incredible surprise is around the corner: the ship is not a “real” ship. In order for the story to unfold and for Jim to follow the pirates, imagination and a fair amount of sensitivity will be required. The audience will play a key role in accompanying Jim looking for the courage to become an adult.
The audience are invited to “step into the game” and follow John Silver’s instructions to visualize, to feel, to listen and to “draw” in front of their eyes a new reality, where the ship, the island, the treasure not only can be real, but can affect our lives too… for an hour at least!
