Romeo Castellucci & Scott Gibbons. The Third Reich


As a first this year, on Wednesday 1 and Thursday 2 May, Caja Escénica del Teatro de la Laboral will host one of the most relevant names in the world of contemporary scenic arts: Romeo Castellucci, famous worldwide for creating theatre plays based on the entirety of arts, and oriented towards an integral perception.

At L.E.V. Festival, he will showcase The Third Reich, a frantic, performative video installation based on the spectral representation of all the substantives included in the Italian dictionary, translated to Spanish and projected on a gigantic screen at a very fast pace, one by one, to force the audience into losing their perception.

With sound composed by experimental electro-acoustic musician Scott Gibbons, this project is the image of an imposed, mandatory communication; of the explicit violence of a single, mass-produced language. The furious bundle of words used here does not allow any choice or judgment. The core of language transformed into white noise, leading to chaos.
