Un clan dell’Onorata Società calabrese, alla morte del boss Achille, giudica Ulisse e non Aiace l’affiliato più valoroso e gli attribuisce il potere del capobastone morto. Aiace, offeso nel suo onore, progetta di sterminare i sui giudici e di torturare il rivale. Durante la tortura Aiace dà sfogo alla propria rabbia e al proprio dolore; sa che da quel momento in poi è diventato nu tingiutu, per gli uomini della cosca uno tinto col carbone, designato a morire, condannato per lo “sgarro” fatto. Per tutti, anche per se stesso, è un cadavere che cammina. In una agenzia di pompe funebri, quartier generale della cosca e funesto scenario di soprusi e gerarchie crudeli, si svolge tutta l’azione.
Ho provato a raccontare la mia Mala Calabria usando gli eroi greci. La tragedia antica mi ha offerto la “vista” per spiegare e interpretare facce, affari, ambizioni, destini e pance di questi malacarne che hanno trovato fortuna e identità nell’altra legge. Senza redimerli naturalmente, ma portando anche alla luce come un certo retroterra possa indirizzare delle scelte non lecite. Perché la maledizione in Calabria si chiama “contiguità”. Quella cosa terribile che costringe onesti e disonesti, mafiosi e non mafiosi a vivere fianco a fianco, a respirare la stessa aria, a frequentare gli stessi luoghi. E questa ignara mancanza di libero arbitrio pone drammaticamente l’attenzione sull’importanza di una educazione anti-mafiosa. Vivendo in questa terra dalle mille contraddizioni, questi dubbi, personali, enormi, sconvenienti, tengono viva la riflessione sul nostro operato quotidiano. Naturalmente mi sono interrogato sulla lingua da usare in una tragedia oggi, e sono arrivato ad un linguaggio, una parlata viva, misteriosa e dialettale. Una parlata fatta di allusioni, di espressioni gergali, di detto e non detto, di segni e occhiate che inaspettatamente, i miei attori ed io, ci siamo ritrovati dentro di noi. Forse per quella solita, maledetta “contiguità”.
