Fausto Malcovati, an historian and an expert in Russian culture, literature and drama, introduces the ErosAntEros show just a few hours before its début. The author of the first biography of Stanislavski (Laterza, 2004), of a study on Meyerhold’s end (2011), and of a recent work on Chekhov (Il medico, la moglie, l’amante. Come Cechov cornificava la moglie-medicina con l’amante-letteratura, Marcos y Marcos, 2016), Malcovati also edited the Italian translations of works by Dostoevsky, Gogol, Turgenev… and, last but not least, received the UBU 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award. Here he will interact with the protagonists of  the show about its contents. Like Shostakovich’s String Quartet no. 8, performed here by Quartet Noûs in its original, full version, to be later manipulated and “distorted” through live electronics for 1917.
