Democracy in America

››This performance is not political‹‹ writes Romeo Castellucci about his new work Democracy in America. His company Socìetas focuses on a historical turning point, the birth of the USA, as a Utopian colonial project and on Alexis De Tocqueville’s 1835 publication, De la démocratie en Amérique. Inspired by De Tocqueville, they explore a forgotten celebration, a still nameless rite, in which theatre is the
necessary yet obscure mirror image of political struggle.
