Fabrica is pleased to host Romeo Castellucci among its lecturers. The director and scenographer is holding an open-access lecture in Fabrica the 27th June, where he will openly reflect on the relation between theatre and contemporary society, and in specifics on the role of the audience as an individual who takes actively part in building the sense of the work.

Romeo Castellucci’s lecture is part of the Out of Step project, a series of conversations and workshops with renowned names of that broad cultural world that encompasses art, design, cinema and underground culture, hosted at Fabrica, curated by Nico Vascellari, former Fabricante and today one of the most important artists of the international scene.

Romeo Castellucci was born in Cesena (Italy) in 1960.

He studied Painting and Scenography at the Accademia delle Belle Arti in Bologna.

He has directed numerous productions, of which he is the author, the director, the designer of the set, the light and the costumes.

Known as a theatre author aiming the total of the arts as an integral perception, he has also written several theoretical essays on staging based on his own theatre's experience. His work suggests dramatic choices, not according to the primacy of literature, making theater become a plastic art, complex and full of visions.

Since 2006, he has worked on the creation of individual projects, independent of the Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio.

His productions are regularly presented and produced by the most prestigious scenes, theaters, operas and international festivals.

His latest creations include Sul concetto di volto nel figlio di Dio  (2011), Parsifal by Richard Wagner (2011), The Four Seasons Restaurant  (2012) and Hyperion by Friedrich Hölderlin (2013), Orfeo ed Euridice  by Christoph Willibald Gluck (2014), Neither by Morton Feldman (2014), Le Sacre du Printemps by Igor Stravinsky (2014), at the Opera Bastille Moses und Aron by Arnold Schönberg (2015) with the revival at Teatro Real in Madrid (2016) and Jeanne Au Bûcher (2017) by Arthur Honegger at Opera de Lyon.

He has received various awards and honors. In 1996 he received the Prix Europa for Nuova Realtà Teatrale. In 2002, he was appointed Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres by the Minister of Culture of the French Republic. In 2005, he was appointed director of the Theater section of the Venice Biennale. In 2008, he was appointed "associate artist" by the artistic direction of the Festival d'Avignon for it's 62nd edition. In 2013, the Venice Biennale awarded him the Golden Lion for his entire career. In 2014, the Alma Mater Studiorum of the University of Bologna awarded him the title of Doctor Honoris Causa in the Music and Theater disciplines.
