As Napoli UnPlugged explains, seven young male and female actors bring 21 pictures of the Master alive through the use of their bodies, some fabric and a few household objects. Set to music, a single beam recreates Merisi’s mastery of light and dark with the actors freezing their movement at a single moment as if in a picture frame.
If it sounds a bit arty, when we saw this back in February we were struck by the combination of awesome location, the simplicity of the idea and the skill with which it is executed by the young cast.
If you miss this weekend, the show will be back in June.
