LUCILIA CAESAR – Performing Arts Laboratory
Theatre for ears – Music for the eyes
Lucilia Caesar creates pieces for the stage that are resolutely atypical: musical theatre, tableaux vivants and performances. Established by Ingrid von Wantoch Rekowski in 1994, the company collaborates closely with artists from a range of disciplines, working with them to develop its creations. Its practice focuses on understanding human beings in all their paradoxes and excesses: tensions between the sublime and the grotesque, the mythical and the trivial, flight and fall… A place where different genres and codes come together, not without humour, Lucilia Caesar’s shows offer a happily strange, highly singular and even iconoclastic theatre – where it is very often about giving substance to the music.
Based in Brussels, Lucilia Caesar enjoys both national and international recognition. From the outset, the profile of its work has been raised with the collaboration of various well-known partners, including theatres, opera houses, festivals and museums.
