Taking a metaphorical scalpel to his life, Michelangelo Drawing Blood uses music, physical theatre, film and photography to delve into the forces that drove the artist’s genius – an obsession with human anatomy, a passionate response to the male body and an equally intense Christian faith. With a creative team that includes singers, dancers, filmmakers and even a viol consort, here 21st century theatre meets 16th century culture as Michelangelo’s creative vision is explored through a series of scenes, some real and some imagined.
Following their acclaimed production of Salomé, seen at the RNCM in Autumn 2011, Sound Affairs’ Michelangelo Drawing Blood promises to offer audiences a theatrical experience with a difference, igniting our imagination by exploring what fired that of the great master.
