About This Show

Trinacria Theatre Company presents its inaugural theatrical production, La Storia di Colapesce, in various locations in the Boston and Greater Boston Area. The production is an original piece devised by the company during a 4-week residency in Sicily.

Company members reimagine the Sicilian folk legend of Colapesce, the tale of a fisherman’s son from Messina who spends so much of his time diving beneath the waves that he is said to be half-man, half-fish. News spreads of Colapesce’s incredible ability, and eventually reaches King Frederick the II of Sicily, who decides to put Colapesce’s powers of diving to the test. The King repeatedly sends Cola to the ocean floor, where he finds terrible things lurking in the deep, threatening to destroy the city of Messina. Trinacria Theatre Company reinvents this classic fable using a wide variety of theatrical story-telling techniques and conventions.
