In the Modena station, on a staircase that connects the platform to the underpass, a foreigner lies unconscious: the crowd tramples him with their big suitcases. In a bar in the old Bari, a foreigner waits tables, wears a T-shirt with the writing GUCCI, and a huge gold crucifix around his neck. Both things, the t-shirt and the necklace, are fake. A sudden storm breaks out in the center of Rome and after few seconds many foreigners are ready to sell you an umbrella. Bunches of roses, slippers, colored leathers, acrid smells, imploring eyes, dark beards, screams.
They are the foreigners of our cities, each one stuck in the role we have assigned them. Their species here is doomed to be foreign.
"LOVE ME is a show that talks about foreigners, window cleaners and the barbarian Medea, all blocked in stupid and ferocious clichés. So stupid that make us laugh, so ferocious that we feel ashamed.
LOVE ME is written in the eyes on a street corner. LOVE ME is a show that brings together two pieces by Antonio Tarantino: the unpublished La Scena and Medea.
The author describes the latter as few can do, without rhetoric, without taboos, with violence and bitter irony. The language that he puts into the mouths of his protagonists is a raw language full of aggression and marginality." - Licia Lanera
