La Giubba is a loose adaptation of Aristophanes’ The Birds which follows the intersections of five drifters as they set out for something better in the Italian south. A young Albanian man and his daughter search for a swimming coach who fled their homeland in the 1990s but are waylaid in an Arbëresh community settled by their countrymen 600 years earlier. Two theatre actors take on a commission to increase audiences in the rural south and traverse the landscape fashioning little theatres of belief, until a Canadian relation turns up. Naive to the Calabrian landscape that surrounds them, each character charts a cartography of their own desire. This screening will be followed by a Q&A with Tony Romano and Corin Sworn.
