Set in a catholic boarding school, OUT-ING touches on teenagers' exposure to sexuality, identity and religion. Holding society´s closed mentality responsible which tends to consider outrageous behaviour meerly because it may be seen as different.
The story focuses on the love between Jason and Peter, who, forced to live their relationship under-cover, lose themselves in a feeling that will lead them to discover a dull society, where they are lost and unable to retain answers for a desperate call for help. Provocative and sharp, supported by a thrilling rock (musical) score, the Musical examines the consequences of ”baring” one's soul and aims to prove how it is difficult for the modern generation to pass from being a teenager to being an adult and having to face a future filled with more questions than answers.
The Musical will be on stage with a preview show on the 17th May 2014 at the Teatro Pandurera di Cento (FE) presented (under licence from TRW – Theatrical Right Worldwide) by Bologna's newborn company “i PerFORMErs”, together with one of the most renowned directores and musical performers in Italy: Mauro Simone (Grease, Chorus Line, Frankenstein Junior, Pinocchio, Tre metri sopra il cielo, Re-play the Musical, and many others).
The themes and messages potrayed in the play are what inspired the “PerFORMErs” to develop a project that will touch on some of the biggest issues in our today's society: Bullying, Homophoby, Rejection, Diversity. This project aims to involve all the associations and institutions that work with such issues and fight every day to ease their effects on our society and between teenagers.
Our idea, starting from the 17th May performance, is to promote the show focusing on the important complaint messages it carries, using videos, interviews, radio, events, flashmobs and other initiatives, that could help draw attention and spread awareness regarding the various themes portrayed in the Musical.The need to produce something other than “just” a Musical show brought the “perFORMErs” to think about a crowdfunding campaign. The amount of money that we would like to raise is intented to cover all the necessary expenses for the success of the project and the show: promotion, artists, reharsal spaces, scenography, costumes, logistic...and much more!
