Black Moon Theatre Company Dante´s Divina Commedia – Inferno

This visually striking adaptation of Dante´s Inferno, directed by internationally acclaimed director, Rene Migliaccio redefines traditional boundaries and offers a haunting and thought provoking examination of our own humanity.

NEW YORK, March 29, 2010 – Black Moon Theatre Company today announced the Prague premiere of Black Moon Theatre Company’s seductive and visually striking multi-media adaptation of Dante´s Divina Commedia – Inferno, that received critical acclaim at the 2009 New York International Fringe Festival.

In this new adaptation of ‘Dante’s Inferno’, Artistic Director Rene Migliaccio creates a multicultural, multidisciplinary and multimedia visual and aural work that positions performers within video projections, redefining traditional theatrical boundaries. Physical Theatre, Music and Poetry in the Italian language create the ritualistic experience of Dante’s journeys through the nine circles of Hell. Canto after canto, Italian performer Alessio Bordoni portrays the character of Dante leading the audience throughout his descent into Hell. The different realms of sin are portrayed through images: moving fragments of collages by critically acclaimed Collage Artist India Evans. Cellist Aminda Asher performs a classical score, a pre-consciousness of Dante’s journey into Hell. In ‘Dante’s Inferno’, the traditional concept of Hell as a place of eternal tortures is re-defined as a condition of spiritual anguish caused by separation from the Sacred.
