Romeo Castellucci (born August 4, 1960) is an Italian theatre director, playwright, artist and designer. Since the 1980s, he has been part of the European theatre avant-garde.
He graduated painting and stage design at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Bologna. In 1981, together with Claudio Castellucci and Chiara Guidi, he founded the Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio.
Since then, he has produced numerous plays as an author, director and scenography, lighting, sound and costume designer. His works, which combine multiple arts to achieve a holistic effect, have been presented in more than 50 countries. Castellucci’s dramatic lines challenge the primacy of literature. His theatre is a visual, complex art rich in vision. He developed a language that is understandable in the same way that music, sculpture, painting and architecture can be.
