>>> A NEW EVE.
Theatre of the subconscious revealed, theatre that draws its inspiration from the founding myths of Western culture and theatre where science, sound composition and visual arts are inextricably linked, the theatre of the Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio assails those who dare stare it in the face, stirring up passions and provoking either discomfort or total adherence. After Orestea
, presented at the FTA in 1997 and 2002 respectively, after having explored new incarnations of tragedy on several stages all over the world, Romeo Castellucci, a major artist of our time, is back with Hey Girl!
, an astounding piece in which "someone wakes up, gets out of bed and gets ready to go out". From a viscous chrysalis emerges a future Eve. She evokes those "queens who lost their heads for the people", plays a Juliette with no Romeo, sprinkles a sword with Chanel No. 5, drapes herself in a shroud bearing the mark of the cross, and meets her black double. All these evocative images are projected onto the stage of a female-focused theatre where anonymous males arrive in a pack and engage in a street fight. A work that celebrates the end of an era for women and the beginning of a new age, a piece where the text is scraped down to the bone, an echo chamber of boundless resonance, Hey Girl!
provokes the surprise of a falling meteor.
