In 2013, Italian artist Romeo Castellucci was given an award for his life’s work by the Venice Biennale. According to them, he has the ability “to create a new language for the stage, interweaving theatre, music and sculpture.” “The Parthenon Metopes” is a sophisticated game with art and reality addressing the great questions of humanity: Where do we come from? Where are we going? In the beginning, there is a moment of horror. There has been an accident, or to put it better: an incident. It’s unclear what exactly has happened. We see a person in pain. Seconds extend into eternity, until help suddenly arrives. Castellucci lets us observe the suffering of others. We are transported into a parallel world in order to take a look at our own world – and find it changed. — Allow yourself to be taken away to a world full of powerful images by one of the most important artists of our time!
