running time 60′
In a gym, outside the box of the institutional theater, a company of young women plays the group of characters of the Death of Empedocles by Hölderlin, a German poet who lived the myth of ancient Greece trying to harmonize classical culture with contemporaneity. It is exercise, discipline, work on the present.
Since 1981, Socìetas has been bringing together Romeo Castellucci, Chiara Guidi and Claudia Castellucci, who share an idea of theater that is mainly based on the visual, fluid and sound power of the scene.
