shadows theatre Jenaro Meléndrez Chas

The Incoronazione -in its wonderful game of feigning, betrayal, duplicity and sensuality- and the Zodiac -in its abstraction and sense of destiny- staged with shadows have become for the students of the Conservatory an exclusive occasion of research on music interpretation, an original access-way to the emotional world of each character.
Different gesture languages, from baroque to contemporary theatre, cohabit in this staging using shadow theater not only as scenic design but especially as a tool for investigating the characters psychology (shadow as double, unconscious, unspoken, dream...) "Interlacing two distant-in-time works while maintaining a thread of history but seizing and opening up to new and unexpected ideas"...
