A show that is first and foremost a tragedy. A tragedy, however, that is not only representation, but imposes the truth about the interaction between Tortelli and bystander, a demonstration of his style, technique and courage, an art form that belongs to his culture and his personal contemporary dramaturgical vision.

Michele Olivieri for Sipario



"...The theatre requires characters to appear on stage dressed in a suit of poetry but at the same time with their bones and blood visible..."

Federico Garcia Lorca


Diego Tortelli’s creation Lorca sono Tutti delves deep into the memory of one of the most famous Spanish mysteries. On a patch of land in the countryside of Andalusia, where the remains of the poet possibly lie buried beneath the hard and heavy clods of earth, an inscription among the olive trees reads: “everyone was Lorca” (“Lorca eran todos”).

In this production, Lorca is reborn as a narrator and as a character/interpreter of his own works, which endlessly explore the themes of mystery, love and death.

The poet is given a new life, face, voice and identity, through a “body” made of bones concealing the “heart” of a fragmented “soul”.
