Claudia Castellucci (I)
I passanti
exhibition of newspaper clippings

Claudia Castellucci has been cutting out figures she saw in the newspapers.
She has been writing on some of the cuttings and others she has framed.
It is like fishing on the stream for real solid figures.
They are holes made on a sheet of reflecting metal. They are bites on the skin of the pachyderm.
They are images that emerge from the flow of quantity, for their intrinsic ability to stand out against the others passing by. They bear a double meaning, the representation that includes the backstage, the surrounding building, the city, the regime. They are images that have a mission: they must communicate the end.

Claudia Castellucci co-founded Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio in 1981 with Romeo Castellucci and Chiara Guidi. In the company she deals with the composition of texts, both dramatic and theoretical, in addition to being an interpreter. After writing Santa Sofia-Teatro Khmer, manifesto of an iconoclastic theatre (1986), she began her own metric and melodic research. Since 1989, she explores and shares this study with the Scuola teatrica della discesa, a group of young people that meets regularly in three-year cycles, combining gymnastics with a philosophical practice. From 2003 to 2008, she has led another school more specifically dedicated to rhythmic movement: la Stoa, with which she composed five Balli, dances marked by an interpretation of movement on the meter of musical time. Since 2009, her art has branched out in two directions: one explores dance as a discipline long practiced by experts, the other goes on the idea of school as a work made ​​up of relationships. The first is made possible through the founding of Mòra, a company composed of classically trained dancers, who perform the dance Homo Turbae. The second is performed by Calla, another school of gymnastics and philosophy that in 2011 interpreted Nascita del Clan, Zarathustra invita alcuni viandanti a passare la notte da lui; and with Sorties de la Caverne. Ecole du rythme de Bordeaux, a school that performs Celebrations in the city, actions of rhythmic intensity and new inventions. In 2011, she began a study based on Le Sacre du Printemps, which was completed in 2012 with the dance La seconda Neanderthal. Claudia Castellucci continues to sporadically perform her own texts, the last of which, Il Regno profondo, is structured like a sermon. For I Passanti she has created some forty paintings intended for exhibition. They are extractions of printed paper figures on which opinions are applied. Her published works include: Il teatro della socìetas Raffaello Sanzio, dal teatro iconoclasta alla super-icona (Ubulibri 1992), Uovo di bocca. Scritti lirici e drammatici (Bollati Boringhieri 2000) Epopea della polvere, (Ubulibri 2001), Les Pèlerins de la matière, théorie et praxis du théâtre  (Les Solitaires Intempestifs  2001), The Theatre of Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio (Routledge 2007).
