Teatro lo Sgambetto
Acqua – Il Musical – Premiere
Socio-cultural project produced entirely in Ticino. The result of a theater workshop supported by professionals. Inspired by the true story of Radwan.
A journey through the pitfalls of the desert and the sea in search of a better place. A park, a mirror of a humanity dense with contradictions, passions and illusions. Inspired by the true story of Radwan, a Somali boy who came to Switzerland eight years ago.
“A wanderer finds a diary. Inside it are stories and poems by a stranger from afar. It is Radwan’s diary. The words flow from the pages and captivate the protagonists by instilling a strange, powerful and mysterious desire to change course.”
