Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio/R.Castellucci (IT)

Romeo Castellucci stages this performance with his six children.
It’s the story of a fairly known gesture: kneeling down.

« I have thought about all those who have gone on their knees and have imagined their gestures as layers in time and space. One upon the other, until the gesture is condensed into a frozen matter in an arc of force. I have gone through the history of this gesture: a selfless shot, free of futile movements, a kinetic interpretation of stasis, absolute immovable potential. Furthermore: before what does one kneel? Where does this need come from now? » Romeo Castellucci
