Peter Greenaway : Veronese, the Wedding at Cana: Charta / Change Performing Arts
by Greenaway, Peter

Overview -
This is a visually stunning exploration of acclaimed artist Peter Greenaway's re-visiting of Veronese's masterpiece, "The Wedding at Cana". It has English text. "The Wedding at Cana" is part of Peter Greenaway's bold artistic project in which he intends to 'visit' - with contemporary sensibility and employing cutting-edge image technology - nine of Western art's most renowned paintings, from the Renaissance up to Picasso and Pollock. Launching his project with a vision of Rembrandt's "The Nightwatch" at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam (2006) and then with Leonardo's "The Last Supper in Milan" (2008), Greenaway now 'visits' "The Wedding at Cana" by Paolo Veronese. "The Wedding at Cana" facsimile set in the original architectural context for which it had been conceived - the Palladian Refectory - offers Greenaway the opportunity for an innovative and original interpretation via a state-of-the-art interplay of images, lighting, music, voices and sounds that will seem to emerge directly from the painting and the walls of the Refectory. The performance - a true multimedia event lasting around 50 minutes - makes spectators relive the episode of the marriage feast at Cana where Christ accomplished his first miracle, as narrated in the "Gospel of St John". Greenaway points out to the public the painting's scores of characters, from the servants preparing dishes, to the banquet guests, to the guests of honour - Jesus and his mother Mary - seated at the centre of the painting's architectural composition, in an on-going crescendo culminating in the narration's crucial moment: the miracle of water turning into wine.
