LA PIETÀ – a videodance installation by Ruben Zahra

3 March 2022 - 17 April 2022

The ‘Pietà’ is a subject depicted by many artists portraying the Madonna cradling the dead body of Christ.

Undoubtedly, the most famous pietà sculpture is by Michelangelo Buonarroti, carved from a block of Carrara marble and located in St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican City. In this videodance project, Zahra reproduces Michelangelo’s “La Pietà” – inverting the Madonna and Christ figures. The youthful male in Mary’s monumental drapery cradles a beautiful female nude on his lap. The girl, just like Michelangelo’s Christ, does not reveal any sign of torment. Throughout the choreography, the couple is fused in a relationship that develops and unfolds to explore a wide range of emotions, from tender embrace to passionate devotion. Movement curated by Ruben Zahra in collaboration with choreographer Francesca Tranter.
