Don’t miss the American premiere of one of the most controversial theater pieces to emerge from Europe in the past few years. A starkly wonderous invention of stagecraft, On the Concept of the Face, Regarding the Son of God questions the meaning of life through a realistic prism of faith and love. As an adult son copes with caring for his aging father, this ode to compassion implores the audience to experience the sacred nature of dignity gained through suffering. In a work both tender and provocative, Romeo Castellucci pushes the limits of stage expression, drawing parallels between the spritual and the physical worlds.
