“If theater to you is sustenance, if you are the sort of person who savors the daring and the visionary, then head to [Peak Performances in] New Jersey, where the Italian avant-garde director Romeo Castellucci and his company ... are offering a thrilling repast at Montclair State University.” – The New York Times

Italian director Romeo Castellucci, one of the most innovative artists of our time, returns to Peak Performances with a modern meditation on the story of Moses. He uses the rich palette of the prophet’s experiences to examine themes of abandonment, exile, truth and falsehood. Taking inspiration both from the Book of Exodus and the William Faulkner novel, Castellucci is a painter using the stage as his canvas, taking us beyond words with theatrical magic and awe.
