Shakespearology is a one-man-show, a biography, a catalog of more or less pop Shakespearean materials, a hybrid theatrical piece that gives voice to Shakespeare himself and tries to overturn the usual roles.

Piccolo Teatro Grassi

Sotterraneo, the theatrical research group founded in Florence in 2005 and composed of a fixed nucleus of authors accompanied by a range of collaborators according to the various projects, returns to the Piccolo with three shows. Each work produced by the group is like a probe launched to examine the linguistic possibilities of theatre, seen both as a physical and an intellectual place, one that is both ancient and inevitably contemporary. With cross-sector and multi-layered works, Sotterraneo spans formats, focusing on the contradictions and shadows of the present though an Avant-pop approach that seeks to express our era while walking a line between the collective imagination and the most anti-conventional of ideas.
In Shakespearology we find ourselves facing the bard himself, who, after centuries spent witnessing the re-elaboration of his life and works, can finally speak up and have his say, questioning contemporary audiences through an “imaginary interview” conducted with the off-stage voices of the members of Sotterraneo.
