S 16 - Luna Nera

by Gian Marco Lo Forte

directed by Gian Marco Lo Forte

Ciaula (Ian Cherry) climbing the wall of the mine 

Inspired by and loosely based on Luigi Pirandello’s poetic children’s story “Ciaula Ha Scoperto la Luna” (Crow discovers the Moon), the production centers on Ciaula, a young Sicilian miner whose entire youth has been spent underground in the sulfur mines until one night when he discovers the regal beneficence of the moon shining in full splendor in the sky. Prior to that, Ciaula’s life had been so regulated by the darkness of the mines and the cruelty of his employers that he preferred the dark and dampness of the mines to the open air of the night above ground. Ciaula’s sudden awareness of the moon’s luminous beauty elicits a transformative, magical moment for the young man, one in which his heart swells with new hope.
