Julius Caesar

Synopsis
Video recording of Julius Caesar staged in Expressionist style at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre as part of the Globe to Globe season. Performed by the I Termini Company from Rome and spoken in Italian.

`Caesar himself is always referred to but not seen. The three conspirators semaphore his murder by drawing striples in red chalk on an old leather chair. Again, fine in itself, but the remaining characters are marooned without his essential presence. Baracco’s direction has whittled the action down to a series of neurasthenic clashes between half a dozen lead characters’. [William Ward. http://www.theartsdesk.com/theatre/globe-globe-julius-caesar-shakespeares-globe].
