TRAILER Romeo Castellucci is a director, set designer, light and costume designer of more than a hundred theatrical performances and operas. THEATRON draws an unprecedented path through his thought processes and his work, bringing on to the screen a 25 year career. The film includes archival materials, rehearsals and European tours. Romeo and Claudia Castellucci’s accounts are combined with the testimonies of dramatists, composers, choreographers, critics and actors (including Willem Dafoe) who have collaborated with the director. THEATRON is not only the biography of one of the most acclaimed Italian directors in the world, but it is also a reflection on the deep roots of theatre, intrinsically linked to human nature.
