Germany – Castellucci and the Ecce Homo icon

On May 26th, “On the Concept of the Face, Regarding the Son of God” is on stage in Erlangen at the 21st internationalen

On the Concept of the Face, Regarding the Son of God does not talk about Jesus, nor about the worship; it has no content of social condemnation and does not want to be easily provocative.
At the same time, Romeo Castellucci keeps his distance from mysticism and debunking because, in the end, it’s just the picture of a man. A man who is exposed naked in front of other men; who, in turn, are laid bare by that man.

The look of Christ becomes a sort of light illuminating a series of human actions which can be good, evil, disgusting or innocent. Hard everyday life scenes between a sick father and his son.

On May 26th, the show is staged in Erlangen within the 21st international, a festival aiming at acting as interface between dance, performance art and new media.
