Carissimi, territory of sacrifice
Scenic version of Jonas and Jephte
This show connects the baroque oratories from Giacomo Carissimi, as a theatrical music show.
Interpreted by eight singers, two dancers, six baroque instrumentalists with original instruments, and images in motion.
These baroque oratories aren’t typically brought to the stage.
We are interested in finding their theatrical sense through their representation on stage.
The staging has a large choreographic unfolding, created from the form in which the stories of the oratories are
organized. The singers are voices that are transformed into narrators, into characters from the story, into opinions
about what is being told.
This arranges actions and bodies in the space, highlighting their relationship with the world.
The audiovisual images frame this space, generating qualities and tensions that enhance the atmosphere
of the ancient story. Both the images and the costumes are of monochromatic tones, emphasizing timelessness.
