PASSIO

Based on work by Scarlatti, Pärt and Andriessen this performance reflects on the theme of 'suffering' in the arts.

The St John Passion that Alessandro Scarlatti wrote in 1685 is of an exceptional beauty and rich in pathos and expression. Complemented with works by Arvo Pärt and Louis Andriessen, the old and the new find each other in compelling rhythms and touching melancholy. Director Luigi De Angelis adds a visual component: a video triptych that navigates between a baroque still life and a modern documentary. Why is suffering such a popular subject in the arts? Are we merely consumers of other people's pain or is there actual room for compassion?
