Join us for an evening with Italian director Romeo Castellucci, one of the superstars of contemporary European visual theatre. The idea for this new play, Hey Girl!, came to him while stopped at an intersection, where he saw a group of girls waiting for their buses. In this piece Castellucci examines through a language of gesture the inner workings of the mind of a teenage girl. In Castellucci’s masterful hands, nuance is everything: a nod, a finger pointed, a raised eyebrow, or a moment of recognition. What is her destiny? Who summons her to appear? Hey girl! performs Feb. 7-10, 2008 at the Kasser Theater, Peak Performances @Montclair State University.

Societas Raffaello Sanzio: Romeo Castellucci along with Chiara Guidi and Claudia Castellucci make up the artistic core of Societas Raffaello Sanzio, the theatre company they founded in 1981. The name they assigned to the company partly reflects their artistic education.

Romeo Castellucci (b.1960) has obtained diplomas in Painting and Scenography at the Academy of Fine Arts; Claudia Castellucci obtained the diploma in Painting and Chiara Guidi is graduated in Arts, with specialization in Art History. Raffaello is the Renaissance painter (Raphael) who combines the perfection of the shape with the inquietude of a world which is quickly losing its reference points; therefore he is the witness to a dramatic tension and a dynamics of technique that are trends always present in the company’s works.

6:30 p.m., Wednesday February 6, 2008, Martin E. Segal Theatre. Free!
