The technical meaning of the word emblem (‘to put inside’) indicates an inlay that leads to a composition of figures. In Roman times it indicated a dispositio, or a combination of effective images. The emblem straddles words and the links between them, in order to say something else with images. Emblems are ‘silent notes’, like hieroglyphics. They seem ‘mute’ to those who look at them without knowing their meaning. They are painted images that do not need to be said, but rather ‘seen’. tomorrow produces precisely this: signs that, through a play of cross-references, actively express content, that is, signify something other than themselves. “Words signify, things are signified. However, things too can signify at times” (Andrea Alciato, The Book of Emblems, 1531).
tomorrow is the step in front of us? alluding to the shoe.

domani [tomorrow] is a conceptual performance, a minimal intervention that reveals itself to the public as a repeated action, a tireless and essential motion in which the human component, represented by the performer on stage, is flanked and completed by a second signifier: music.
An equal relationship that transforms the sound work of the visionary American sound artist and composer Scott Gibbons into a figure in its own right, confirming the decades-long collaboration with Castellucci.

Director and stage, lighting and costume designer Romeo Castellucci (Cesena, Italy, 1960) is known throughout the world for creating a theatre founded on the totality of the arts and aimed at an integral perception. He has also written various theoretical essays on directing. His theatre engages in a type of dramaturgy that overturns the primacy of literature, thus becoming a complex and supple form of art, a theatre made of extraordinarily rich images expressed in a language as comprehensible as music, sculpture, painting or architecture.
His stagings are regularly invited to and produced by the most prestigious international theatres, opera houses and festivals, in over fifty countries covering all the continents.
