Teatro sotto le stelle
A ludicrous theatre piece
Each year, old Miss Sophie celebrates her birthday with her four old friends, who unfortunately are dead by now. Despite being left alone, Miss Sophie does not feel discouraged at all. She relies on her loyal butler Otto, who will have to bring this surreal dinner to an end. Setting it up will mean one gag coming after the other, together with strange situations full of humour and rhythm, where the butler will be busy settling the trouble caused by the waiters that will prove themselves as jugglers, acrobats and clowns. The last course will be the highlight, when the butler will serve the beverages to Miss Sophie and her imaginary guests. He will then have to empty out every glass, several times, which will result in an alcoholic catastrophe.
“Chez Dimì” is a playful comical show, featuring two clowns that will alternate their roles in a whirlwind of gags, while disrupting the narrative with a frantic rhythm.
This is an attempt to retrace the great overseas comical classics, in which motion, mimic, the inevitable catastrophe and a tragicomic epilogue are all elements that the public takes for granted.
