Moni Ovadia

Moni Ovadia by Pino Settanni

“The directors of Cenit have finally conjugated civil and ritual theatre; it is a powerful indication of language and content. With a lump in my throat, I saw through their work the most intense humanity emerge in the most extreme reality of violence and pain. Theatre can also do this because it is the secular tabernacle of human intimacy. It is not surprising then that in Italy among the most courageous and anti-conformist voices of our civil conscience are the men and women of theatre. Through theatre, they allow us to enter into relationship with the terrible things that refugees have experienced and make us understand that the most important thing in life is the dignity of the human being, it is the most precious thing that exists.”

– Moni Ovadia, Italian director, actor and musician. Roma, 2010
