We are bullets made of flesh, fallen to Earth.That is a tragedy… But there is also a lot to laugh about.

Romeo Castellucci is a complex artist, one of the main characters of the contempo­rary theatre. In the last thirty years, Castellucci and his theatre company, the Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio, staged performances all over Europe and became one of the leaders of the avant­-garde theatre. THEATRON draws the portrait of an unique artist: Romeo and Claudia Castellucci’s comment binds to the testimonies of dramatists, composers, choreographers, critics and actors (including Willem Dafoe) who collaborated with the director. Among rehearsals in the theatres all over the world, the film is a deep reflection not just about performances, but also about the connection between the author and the representation of the Human Nature.
