Synopsis


The Italian contemporary performance collective, Societas Raffaello Sanzio is one of the most recognized and sought after Italian companies of the past decade. Founding leaders of the company include Claudia Castellucci, Romeo Castellucci, and Chiara Guidi. For the first 20 years the works were directed and designed by Romeo Castellucci, the company creates works in the genre of the “Theater of Images” incorporating elaborate spectacles of theater machines, dense sound scapes, and narrative fragmentations. The performers onstage are a mix of the Casellucci family, Italian actors, real performers of extreme age, size, or physical conditions, and animals. In the past 5 years the company as fragmented to present separate works directed by Rome Castellucci, Claudia Castellucci, Chiara Guidi.

Reviews

In 2001 he initiated an ambitious three-year project: a nine-production cycle called “Tragedia Endogonidia” (or “Endogonidic Tragedy”), original performed spectacles, each commissioned for a different city whose landscape and past became part of the director’s subject. The cities included Berlin, Brussels, London and Rome. (After their premieres in the host cities the “Tragedia” works toured worldwide) The cycle’s cryptic title refers to one of Mr. Castellucci’s overall goals: to express “a tragedy of the future,” partly by making visceral allusions to Europe’s violent history. His compositions, along with his jarring and sometimes disturbing visuals, reflect his early training as a painter and set designer. His company’s name refers to the Renaissance artist Raphael and the many painterly perspectives Mr. Castellucci tries to incorporate into his stage compositions.
