About this show

Dario D'Ambrosi, one of Italy's leading performance artists and originator of the theatrical movement called teatro patologico, returns to La MaMa in Nemico Mio (My Enemy) to share one of the most acclaimed works of his early career with a larger audience. The piece, which had its American debut at La MaMa in 1988, is a maverick Vladimir-and-Estragon (Waiting for Godot)-type play in which two inmates of a psychiatric hospital, one speaking and one mute, engage in elaborate, poetic fantasies of being at the beach. Critics have hailed it as an astonishing piece of théâtre vérité, revealing the hair's breadth that separates the sane from the insane.
