La “Ilíada” de Alessandro Baricco

Muerte-de-hector“Los ancianos saben ver el pasado y el futuro al mismo tiempo, y decidir qué es mejor para todos…”

Paris y Helena. Amor prohibido. Amor ficticio. Manzana de la discordia. Triada de diosas que provocan uno de los enfrentamientos bélicos más recordados de la historia, o del mito de la historia, o de la narración historiográfica, una que nació ligada a la poesía.

Hacia la segunda mitad del siglo VIII a.C., presumiblemente, Homero, un habilidoso rapsoda griego, tradujo al lenguaje escrito un relato popular de época por todos conocido, episodio final de la invasión aquea a Troya, ciudad de espléndidos muros.

Ahora, en pleno siglo XXI, con el firme propósito de acercar el poema épico al público desde una óptica contemporánea, con un lenguaje accesible, la actriz Marta Verduzco organiza una temporada de lecturas dramatizadas en torno a La Ilíada, esta vez desde la versión propuesta por el reconocido novelista y dramaturgo italiano Alessandro Baricco (Turín, 1958).

Dicho ciclo de lecturas estrenó funciones este lunes 10 de octubre y planea presentarse hasta el próximo 21 de noviembre en la Capilla Gótica del Centro Cultural Helénico.

La iniciativa resulta arriesgada e innovadora al proponer la lectura de sólo tres episodios por sesión, fragmentando con inteligencia la obra y evitando el tedio maratónico de una reproducción larga, cansada y engorrosa. Así pues, a lo largo de seis sesiones, con funciones todos los lunes, a excepción del 7 de noviembre, la obra será leíada en su totalidad para el veintiuno de noviembre.

“Me encantó el libro porque lo que Baricco hizo fue quitar toda la presión de los dioses y dejó como columna vertebral la guerra de Troya. Es un texto muy interesante, muy bonito; terrible y a la vez atractivo. No sé cuál fue su intensión pero pienso que se le ocurrió hacer esto porque a publicaciones como La Ilíada, La Odisea o El Quijote muy poca gente las ha leído, entonces hizo una adaptación para invitar al público a leerla completa” explicó Verduzco en una entrevista previa al estreno de la puesta en escena.

Para dar vida a las batallas simuladas entre troyanos y aqueos, Marta Verduzco se hace acompañar de tres reconocidos histriones: Ana Ofelia Munguía, Gabriel Casanova y Fernando Becerril, quienes prestarán sus educadas voces al guión de Ilíada.

“He insistido –añadió Verduzco, directora de la iniciativa– en que el actor entienda lo que está leyendo y no se escuche como una lectura, tampoco que imposten la voz o ese tipo de cosas. Que sea como una plática en la que de damos ciertas inflexiones a la voz porque así es como nos expresamos. Se trata de hacer esos textos como si nosotros estuviéramos platicando con el público”.

Las lecturas dramatizadas de Ilíada, adaptación de Alessandro Baricco, se llevarán a cabo los días lunes a las 20:00 horas hasta el 21 de noviembre en la Capilla Gótica del Centro Cultural Helénico, ubicado en Avenida Revolución 1500, colonia Guadalupe Inn. Las sesiones tienen una duración aproximada de 105 minutos, el precio por localidad es de $150 pesos y el abono para le temporada completa tiene un costo de $600 pesos.
