Giulio Cesare. Pezzi staccati.

Romeo Castellucci


The Italian iconoclast and grandmaster of theatre, Romeo Castelluci, who tours around the world with his iconographic and pure creations, does a remake of his well-known performance Giulio Cesare from 1997. This piece is based on Julius Caesar by Shakespeare and shows Roman society without any form of glory but in a sensual, almost visceral way. Thus the mysterious character “vskij” has a small endoscopic camera in his nose which projects images of his vocal cords live on stage. How literally can the word become flesh ? On the other hand, there's Marc Anthony who is placed on a pedestal like a statue and can only breathe through a hole in his throat after a laryngotomy. Seldom was theatre so intense, so naked and to the bone. Not for sensitive viewers !
