Summary/Abstract: Monika Żółkoś reviews a book by Dorota Semenowicz, This Is Not a Picture: Romeo Castellucci and the Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio, released as part of the Ha!art Publishers theater series (Krakow 2013). Without attempting to synthesize Castellucci's entire oeuvre, the scholar establishes her own structure, distinguishing between his iconoclastic plays, his pre-tragic period, and his period of works with religious images. One of the main strands is an analysis of the iconography of Castellucci's theater and his visual understanding. Another important part of her study is the status of the viewer in the Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio Theater and the challenges placed before him or her.
