Let’s take three words: Treviso, Teatro delle Voci, Home Festival; add young, September, punk, rock and fashion trends. Mix all the elements and then make a splash of it with the notes of Ramones.
This is not a cocktail; this could be the suburbs’ darning that often engages Renzo Piano: joining suburbs to the centres of the culture.
Ten years ago, the Theatre (http://www.teatrodellevoci.com/) has been restructured, enabled by Fondazione Cassamarca, according to the European avant-garde theatres’ style: the new Opéra de la Bastille in Paris. There are movable bulkheads and stages on interchangeable elevators that are camouflaged under the floor.
Surely, Alex Milanese is the bet on the future of Davide Florian and Box Record srl, that accepted the challenge of starting up in Veneto, Italy, an international avant-garde theatre of audio and video recording, that is the Teatro delle Voci.
Davide Florian, 30 years old, is a sound assistant and worked in many musical productions; Alex Milanese, 33 years old, is an architect of sound; Giovanni Lodde, drummer and biker, dealt with the Abba Show and now he is also a collaborator of the Theatre.
Following Davide Florian’s style, the Teatro delle Voci
“is an incubator of any artistic and musical kind, where you can commemorate past eras to project them into the future” ,
Alex Milanese would see it as
“an important occasion to have in Treviso national and international production looking for particular acoustics”.
In Giovanni Lodde’s practices, the theatre can host Marky Ramone, the last one of Ramones, the punk-rock band come out from the garage of New York in 1974 to inspire thoughts, life and musics of four generations, including fashion.
Behind the spangles of the fashion business, the crest and the rebellion of the punk made the success of Vivienne Westwood, Rodarte, Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, Gianni Versace, Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy and the same John Galliano.
Forty years of tartan, black skin, studs, skulls, pink-fuchsia-green-blue-violet hair, piercing, tattoos, crests, Doc Martin plough the catwalks of New York, London, Berlin and the streets of our cities; forty years since the foundation of Ramones.
A mood well played by Ringo, speaker and DJ. Indeed, he will follow for Virgin Radio all the events dedicated to Ramones during the four days of the 5th edition of the Home Festival 2014. (http://www.homefestival.eu/website/index2.htm) Home Festival, Ramones, Teatro delle Voci.
In Alex Milanese and Davide Florian’s ideas there are, not only punk and rock, but also Venice and the Theatre La Fenice. Cristiano Chiarot, La Fenice’s supervisor, thought about a project to involve young people and the theatre to favor the experimentations. Venetian universities and conservatories didn’t stand by and watch; the Theatre La Fenice will answer the call.
