A woman. A radio. A pasta dish - and first of all singing.
An old woman is standing in her kitchen cooking a pasta dish, I Maltagliati, for a guest. During a morning she relives her life through songs.
The performance is built around a series of powerful, Italian folk songs and other songs that uniquely communicates ordinary human feelings, desires and dreams. The songs are regular people's voices and include all aspects of everyday life: work, love, struggle, birth and death.
The story takes place in two spaces: the physical space, the kitchen, where the woman makes pasta, only in the company of a radio, and a space of memories, where we see the woman's life in flashbacks, open to the viewer's own interpretation.
I Maltagliati is performed in Danish and Italian, and is primarily sung. A strong performance about a woman's life created by Sandra Pasini, who is also on stage.
The press wrote: "Chamber play in Italian. This is what you can call Teatret OMs performance I Maltagliati, which was received with thunderous applause. The music, her brilliant body language and fantastic voice, lead the audience safely through a woman's life told by an old woman while she cooks. Dagbladet Ringkøbing-Skjern.
