The Calvino Project (working title)
    By Italo Calvino / Devised piece

    20:00, Fri 17th February 2006 at The Cambridge Union
    Lent Week 4

    A dazzling night of sumptuous theatre. In the magical baroque of the Union Chamber a tangle of actors, musicians, artists and dancers devise a night of fairytale reality, working to alternately caress and manipulate the spectator with the macabre, the sublime and the tragic as, for the first time, Italo Calvino's kingdom of stories are brought to the stage. Tales of ecstasies and transfigurations, martyrs and tortures, horrors and seductions, lure the audience through a calculated delirium of brimming sensations. Total collaboration across an enormous body of talent works to create an exuberant night of drama reaching theatrical levels as yet unexplored by Cambridge students. Woven from a devised narrative, a plethora of dramatic influences, an original score that includes D.J's, classical guitarists and sopranos and a vibrantly creative new design scheme, this one night of theatre promises to be sensational.
