Unquestionably one of the most important figures in contemporary theatre, Romeo Castellucci’s Go Down, Moses is striking, esoteric and abstract. Exploring existential doubts and uncertainties from the Old Testament Book of Exodus, it is laden with layers of meaning to excavate. Dark, deep and divisive, this profound meditation on the human psyche by Italy’s most radical theatre company is ripe for post-show rumination.
