“Julius Cesar. Spared Parts” features two mysterious characters: “…Vski,” a sort of Stanislavski who films the vibrations of his vocal chords with an endoscope, and Marc Antony, played by an actor without vocal chords, who addresses the audience directly from his oesophagus.

Combining sculpture, technology, and the animal world, Castellucci once again challenges the conventions and limits of disciplines. Touching on the themes of democracy, rhetoric, and ritual, this is a visceral encounter with a theatre that is as disturbing as it is transcendent.
