The Exchange Program 1

Cinquanta Urlanti Quaranta Ruggenti Sessanta Stridenti (Dewey Dell)

Cinquanta Urlanti Quaranta Ruggenti Sessanta Stridenti springs from a reflection on the ship and its inhabitants. An obscure jumble becomes the general breath: the sound of a world where the man, the wind, the ship and the sea, inextricably combined together, form the only conceivable protagonist.

V (Justin Shoulder)

Calling to life a demon for today, the creature V is manifest. In a ceremony of the senses, the theatre will become an altar for V to revel in the beauty and horror of contemporary idolatry and its fifteen minutes of fame.

About the Artist

Dewey Dell was formed in 2007 by four young people: Teodora, Demetrio, Agata Castellucci and Eugenio Resta. The four founders of the company have grown up artistically, sharing the important formative experience of the Stoa, the school for the rhythmic movement based in Cesena, Italy. Teodora, Agata, Eugenio and Demetrio have strong skills in different areas. This took each of them to give priority to a specific aspect of the work, without giving up a collective modelling of materials. The name Dewey Dell is a tribute to Faulkner and to the young girl of “As I lay dying“, under whose look the company prepares itself to wander towards the abyss.
