Theatre for the ears – music for the eyes
Established by Ingrid von Wantoch Rekowski in 1994, Lucilia Caesar is a laboratory of musical theatre that radically explores and questions both languages. Run by its founder in close collaboration with dedicated artists from a variety of disciplines, Lucilia Caesar’s work is shaped by the challenge of understanding human beings in all their paradoxes and excesses: tensions between the sublime and the grotesque, the mythical and the trivial, flight and fall…
Its aim is to give substance to the music and create projects and hybrid forms that combine different genres and codes. Each creation is always a unique and unconventional experience, inviting the spectator’s participation, inducing surprise, provoking emotion – and often laughter. Whether using the most conventional or the most unexpected forms – paintings, music and legends – these become iconoclastic in the original sense of the word.
Based in Brussels, Lucilia Caesar has a strong influence nationally and internationally. The profile of its work has been raised with the support of partners – theatres, opera houses, festivals, museums – with whom this atypical company has worked with from the outset. Lucilia Caesar’s shows have been performed widely, including in Belgium, France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Brazil and Taiwan.
