Feature: Alain Platel's pitié!

Friday 12 December 2008


*pitié!_ is an intense study of Bach’s extraordinary composition Matthew Passion. Alain Platel’s daring reinvention of Bach’s ‘untouchable’ masterpiece explores
our ability to sympathise by approaching the central story of the crucifixion
from the perspective of the mother.*
