le ragioni di un'esposione

The Spoors exhibition attempts to capture traces, as the title suggests, left by one of the most radical contemporary theater companies, Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio, which has distinguished itself not only for its controversial performances, but also for the powerful imagery that it creates.

It will feature twenty-five photographs by Luca del Pia taken from major shows from 1996 to 1999, that are not only documentary in nature, but are also works from inside the research of the company. In fact they aesthetically represent the central themes of the performances: to give the tragedy a new birth as a new form of art, by remaking Shakespearean Tragedies of Julius Caesar and Hamlet. The core of the work also tells the story of the human creation and the deconstruction of the role of the actor, transfigured in a postmodern animal in the Endogonidian Tragedy.

The exhibition will also feature a site-specific sound installation created by Chicago-based composer Scott Gibbons and Chiara Guidi, co-founder of the company with Romeo and Claudia Castellucci. The piece throws the spectator in the middle of the obscurity of a universal yet personal tragedy.
