LUCIANI’S ABSOLUTE THEATER
New proposals for the understanding of the timeless drama of our existence.

“I believe the theater has the power to bring back the child-like fascination
for life we once had and have lost.” –  Guido Luciani

BACK TO BASICS
The tenets of theatre are ancient primitive.  Man told stories; stories to share an important experience or to explain the unexplainable.  The stories were communal.  The shared experience became rituals.  The stories became myths.  The rituals incorporated dramatization.  The storytellers became shamans, priests and actors.  As society became more sophisticated the stories began to push their ritualistic constraints and theatre was born.
The stories of theatre continued to serve a similar purpose to rituals; gods intervening in the lives and passions of humans.
At its finest theatre explores the depths of human experience whether dictated by the gods or psychology.  The results can range from hilarious to painful to thought provoking and ultimately to cathartic.  However, at times the theatre of a culture stagnates losing its tenuous connection to the essential impulse to viscerally share.   –  Mark Solari

Artists are the trailblazers of society.   They expose the world.  They enlighten us with their vision.  They enrich our lives with their dreams.  They elevate our souls with…

    • THE NEW BOHEMIANS

      "Art is the free expression of our souls, passion its creative force.  The function of an artist is not to capture this creative energy but to allow it to freely flow from the most intimate personal source within us and out into the world.  When an artist indulges in mental masturbation, the connection to the soul gets lost, and social, moral and personal man-made codes block this boundless…
