If This Is a Man
by Primo Levi
A powerful and deeply moving text. A true story that still touches us and that will always remain a fundamental means of keeping our conscience awake and the memory alive. The dramaturgical adaptation has turned the book into a performance lasting one hour and ten minutes which faithfully reproduces the content of the work. The temporal structure of Primo Levi’s story has been maintained and a selection of images, descriptions and comments renders the narration accessible and personal. Music is mixed with the words, sometimes emphasizing them, at others leaving the audience space to reflect, imagine or ponder. Anecdotes and descriptive passages alternate with moments of reflection on the part of the author and with spectral, poetic and curious figures, the Drowned and the Saved, Primo Levi’s fellow travelers on this journey into the depths.
