Anagoor • Accademia d'Arcadia // Et manchi pietà.

Friday 16 November ORE 21:00
>> <<

The relationship between classicism and contemporary languages, so central in the artistic research undertaken by Anagoor (who was also part of this edition of the festival with Oresteia) is dedicated to the performance hosted by REf18 at Palazzo Barberini, in the grand salon frescoed by Pietro da Cortona. A place permeated by history in which the Italian troupe, one of the most appreciated of its generation, presents Et Manchi Pietà. Artemisia Gentileschi and the music of her time together with Accademia d’Arcadia.

A multimedia creation of video art and live music, the show – as its title suggests – is dedicated to the work of the painter Artemisia Gentileschi (Rome 1593 – Naples c.a. 1656) and accompanied by works by contemporary composers. Thirteen large paintings are combined with an equal number of musical pieces by Monteverdi, Merula, Strozzi, Castello, Landi, Rosso, Falconieri, Fontana, Trabaci and Marini, translating the melancholy, violent or even exuberant mood, binding them inextricably to the pictorial themes of Gentileschi.
