JULIUS CAESAR SPARED PARTS

Date:

JULIUS CAESAR SPARED PARTS

For his New York City debut, in the Crossing the Line Festival, Castellucci deconstructs Julius Caesar into a brief, phantasmagorical dreamscape set among the marble columns of Federal Hall, birthplace of the American republic. Shakespeare’s famous speeches are transformed into an almost unrecognizable meditation on mortality and meaning as they are delivered by statuesque figures whose bodies are quite literally turned inside out. Touching on democracy, rhetoric, and ritual, this visceral encounter is theater at its most disturbing and most transcendent.

Romeo Castellucci is one of Europe’s most radical and acclaimed theater directors and the recipient of a lifetime achievement award from the Venice Biennale (2013). He draws from theater, music, visual art, and the human unconscious, to create a visual language that is provocative and discomforting.
