About

“And there’s blood pouring out of this man’s throat. Because these two women are beheading him - did I not mention that?”

Fringe First and Total Theatre Award- winning Breach (Tank, The Beanfield) restage the 1612 trial of Agostino Tassi for the rape of baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi.

Based on surviving court transcripts, this new play dramatises the seven-month trial that gripped Renaissance Rome, and asks how much has changed in the last four centuries.

Blending myth, history and contemporary commentary, this is the story of how a woman took revenge through her art to become one of the most successful painters of her generation.

Breach creates politically engaged, formally innovative live performances that cross disciplines and mash up di erent media. A collaboration between theatre-makers and a video artist, Breach has been described as “a young company with a strong creative identity” - The Stage.
