ABOUT THE WORK
Sotterraneo aims to investigate the linguistic possibilities of theatre – a place characterized by a physical and intellectual time, both old and hopelessly contemporary.
Sotterraneo like to experiment with different formats, producing cross-cutting and stratified pieces in search of form and content. Sotterraneo’s avant-pop approach seeks to narrate our times whilst striking a balance between the collective imagination and the most unconventional thinking.
