t4/ La persona deprimida/ Foster Wallace - Veronese

The EXPERIENCES Series, emerge from 2 narrative texts by David Foster Wallace and a biodramatic dramaturgy written by Marcus Lindeen. The three works, with different mechanisms, have the particularity of getting us into socially harsh issues, contrasting with the everyday life that we would like to inhabit, but at the same time close. They are uncomfortable, intimate and familiar topics. Places where diving is not always easy.

La persona deprimida/ Foster Wallace - Veronese



"La Persona Deprimida". A vast portrait of a woman's state of mind.
A person who is limited to describing the circumstances, both past and present, that make up, make up his anguish. The inability to share or express that pain. Pain that brings us closer to the human.

"La Persona Deprimida" narrates in the third person the future of a woman with pathological depression. She tells the relationship with her analyst, with her parents which, according to her, are the basis of her current traumas. She also describes the particular therapeutic method proposed by her analyst: what she calls “the circle of help”, a group of people she trusts that she can call at any time to tell them about her thoughts and emotions. Thus the story advances, penetrating, without limits, in details of a lacerating intimacy and reaching expressions of deep humanity that exceed the description of the disease, and reveal a whispering request for help.

“At least words appear that are more likely to be thought than to be said. They are things that one thinks, even because of the way the texts are put together. They are things that are not offered for easy understanding, but just think one way and speak another. These discourses are close to thought as if there were no filter of consciousness. This gives me warmth, because they are unprotected beings, who sometimes resemble the animal, not the human. However, speech is human speech ”- Daniel Veronese.
