FM Cultural Calendar | Starting Tuesday, August 5, 2014
It's 1927. You're in the great home of Gabriele d'Annunzio, the Italian poet who inspired Mussolini's brand of Fascism. Tamara de Lempicka is due to arrive, the iconic Polish artist. You're offered a glass of champagne. And it begins: you meet 10 characters, each fascinating, each with secrets. The barrier between spectator and actor is dissolved. TAMARA has been described like an elaborate movie set, with each audience member poised as a camera.
