Tesla is become more a fashion than a name, more a multinational corporation brand than a source of inspiration. Audience will discover how and why a man so bright was forgotten by his own society and commodified by our own present society. The work has been present at Biennale Teatro of Venice 2017 and at International Theatre Festival of Colline Torinesi 2018. Audience has split in half highlighting a generation gap between those who are fighting to devoting their life to open new experimental streets and those who forget what it means to be a free researcher and not only an employed, an official.



Tesla on muuttunut nimestä muoti-ilmiöksi, inspiraation lähteestä kansainväliseksi brändiksi. Esitys näyttää miten ja miksi älykäs fyysikko unohdettiin aikanaan omassa yhteisössään ja kuinka nykyaika on kaupallistanut hänet.



Tesla har förvandlats alltmer till mode än ett namn, mera till ett multinationellt brand än en inspirationskälla. Publiken får märka hur en så klipsk man blev bortglömd av sin egna samhälle, och hur han kommodifieras i dagens läge.
