Based on Dante’s Inferno, Sulle Vie dell’Inferno (On the Pathway to Hell in English) was a one-time performance created by Figli d’Arte Cuticchio for the 700th anniversary of the Italian poet’s death in 2021. The performance is conceived and directed by master puppeteer and company founder Mimmo Cuticchio.
Sulle Vie dell’Inferno is an example of how Cuticchio has sought to re-energize the popular theatrical tradition of Sicilian puppetry that he was born into.
The film is in Italian with English subtitles. The screening is followed by a live Q&A with the artists.
This event is free and unticketed.
The film is part of Figli d’Arte Cuticchio’s residency at the Hop. Learn more about their performance La Storia del Soldata, showing at the Hop April 18–19, and Sicilian puppetry here.
