Intervista all’attrice Margherita Peluso

Ciao Margherita! E’ un vero piacere ospitarti sul nostro portale. Iniziamo dalla prima domanda. Un bel tuffo nel passato. I tuoi sogni da bambina?

Sogni ne facevo tanti ma non me li ricordo tutti. Ho solo l’immagine di un omone alto e snello che mi guarda fisso con occhi sbarrati accanto al letto. Mah …mistero!! Desideravo conoscere il mondo. All’elementari scappai da scuola con la mia migliore amica ed una mela acerba nello zaino, poi fortunatamente tornammo indietro prima che chiamassero la polizia. Scrivevo moltissimo e raccontavo barzellette.

Gray’s Disconnect

“Gray’s Disconnect” is about reincarnation of tragedy and connection and how it manifests throughout our lives. Sometimes there is a disconnect (that can’t be escaped) not only with the world and your family but also within yourself. How do you reconnect?

An Interview with Margherita Peluso

Margherita Peluso is an Italian-born actor and translator who has been working in the Melbourne theatre scene since 2012. In collaboration with director Laurence Strangio, Peluso has recently turned her attention to producing uniquely bi-lingual translations of monologues by well-known Italian dramatists for the Anglophone stage. Through these pieces, Peluso is able to articulate aspects of female experience through politically-charged performances of virtuosic intensity.
