BAEZA
Montemar Theatre

TEATRI 35 & TIENTO NUOVO
Ignacio Prego, harpsichord and conductor

 

Chiaroscuro
(Tableaux vivants with Caravaggio’s paintings and live Baroque music)

The paintings are created before the eyes of the audience, who is involved in a mystic and sensorial experience. One can feel, taste, touch, breath and see Caravaggio. We re-discovered a kind of theatre where the naturally imperfect body shows itself through a prissy play of light and shadow that unveils things instead of showing them. Just like in Caravaggio’s paintings, a burst of light comes to us for grace received. The audience will witness the creation of nineteen paintings by Caravaggio while listening to a concert by Tiento Nuovo, including high-contrasting and dramatic pieces by Vivaldi, Corelli and Porpora, among others.

Teatri 35. Founded by Gaetano Coccia, Francesco De Santis and Antonella Parrella, this group has been working for many years on the tableaux vivants technique. From 2011 Teatri 35 has started working with internationally renowned orchestras and conductors, including Gianna Fratta and the Nuova Orchestra Scarlatti. With the latter, they produced the show Caravaggeschi, presented at both the Prinzregententheater in Munich and the Ravello Festival. In 2017 Chiaroscuro was presented at the Greek National Opera alternative stage – Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center.

Tiento Nuovo. It was founded in 2016 by Spanish harpsichordist Ignacio Prego, and has quickly become a regular ensemble at the main concert halls and festivals in Spain, offering “brilliant, full of depth and lyricism” readings (Scherzo, 2016). Recent engagements include concerts at the Landesmuseum Württemberg in Stuttgart (Germany), the Royal Theater of the Łazienki Palace in Warsaw (Poland), the Festival de Arte Sacro in Madrid, and the Conde Duque Auditorium, Espacio Turina in Sevilla, among others.
