La Storia di Colapesce: USA Tour
Trinacria Theatre Company presents its inaugural theatrical production, La Storia di Colapesce. This international theatrical event is an original piece created and devised by American theatre artists during a 4-week residency in the Messina region of Sicily. The Trinacria Theatre Companys mission is to use theatre as a tool to promote Sicilian history, heritage, and culture at home and abroad.

The story centers around the Messinese folk legend of Colapesce, which tells the story of a fisherman's son named Nicola, a boy who spends so much of his time diving beneath the waves that he is said to be half-man, half-fish. Many tales are told of Colapesce's incredible diving abilities, and  news eventually reaches King Frederick the II of Sicily, who tests Colapesce's powers. The King repeatedly sends Cola to the oceans bottom, where he discovers that the entire island of Sicily rests upon three columns. One column remains standing strong, while a second is cracked, and the third is nearly completely destroyed. According to local legend, Colapesce dove beneath the waves and never surfaced - perhaps gone forever, or perhaps holding the island on his back. Trinacria Theatre Company reinvents this classic fable using a wide variety of theatrical story-telling techniques.

This bilingual performance comes to the US after touring in Sicily. The cast features performers from both Boston and New York, including Josephine Cooper, Sean Devare, Quinton Kappel, Elena Kritter, Mariagrazia LaFauci, Kathleen Lewis, Dario Sanchez, and Max Sklar.
