Romeo Castellucci established Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio in 1981. His work, not easily categorized as theatre or visual art, focuses more on the manifestation of meaning by the awakening of the senses through the combination of body energy, materiality, sound and visual elements rather than on conceptual interpretation or narrativity. In 2008, he was a associate artist at the Avignon Festival in France and produced Paradiso, Inferno and Purgatorio inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy. Paradiso was co-produced by Nam June Paik Art Center and will have its world premiere, after the Avignon Festival, at the Nam June Paik Art Center. Paradiso is the staging of an image of heaven as carbonized bodies under powerful blinding lights.
