Kobane shouts on stage returns to enter the scene and does so in one of the liveliest places of Italian culture: it will in fact be the nineteenth century Bellini Theater from Naples to host reruns of the show from May 10 to 22.

On the evening of the premiere, Michele Rech (Zerocalcare) will be present, flanked by Ylmaz Okan – National Association UIKI ONLUS (representing the Kurdish people). Together with them: Emanuele Vietina – director of Lucca Crea and Lucca Comics & Games, Nicola Zavagli – author and director of Boarding Theaters, Daniele Russo – artistic director of the Bellini Theater.

Kobane Calling (Bao Publishing) is a comic strip by the Italian author Zero calcare: a report in graphic form of the journey that took him to the border between Turkey and Syria, a few kilometers from the besieged city of Koban√™, between the Kurdish defenders of Rojava, opposed to the forces of the Islamic State. An act of solidarity with those who risk their lives every day in Syria, chosen for the Graphic Novel Theater project of Lucca Comics & Games and presented for the first time in the 2018 edition as the festival’s new artistic trajectory, impulse gathered by the director and playwright Nicola Zavagli, who for years has pursued a popular theater of civil art with the actress Beatrice Visibelli and the company Teatri d’Imbarco.

Lucca Comics & Games director Emanuele Vietina said:

For over five years we have been launching the Graphic Novel Theater project. Theater is a fundamental language for us that we wanted to merge with the world of comics: we decided to experiment, create, lead the way and look for the new work together with our audience. It is also a way for us to express our gratitude to the great graphic novel authors who give voice to the most important themes of the present. Being able to leave Naples is an indescribable emotion: let’s go back to where the Kobane Calling tour was interrupted because of the pandemic. We are finally bringing back a show that maintains the same topicality and that we are sure will be able to enthuse and engage the Neapolitan audience.
