Research Article

Anna Maria Cimitile, ‘Tragedy and Shakespeare Performance Studies in Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio’s Giulio Cesare (1997) and Macbeth su Macbeth (2014)’, Cahiers Élisabéthains 96.1, 2018, pp 102-116, ISSN 0184-7678 (DOI: 10.1177/0184767818768092)

Abstract: The article discusses two productions, respectively of Julius Caesar and Macbeth, by the experimental Italian theatre company Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio (SRS). My wider scope is a reflection on what I may call the ‘peregrinations’ of the sense of the tragic in our times; my more specific question is: How is the Shakespearean tragic envisioned by SRS? What does their ‘performative thinking’ reveal about tragedy and our sense of the tragic today? As the performances are in Italian, based on Italian translations of Shakespeare, the question of the different language will also be briefly considered, to listen to the ‘ear of the other’ in critical action.
