The New Yorker Previews La Davina Caricatura



Joan Acocella (The New Yorker) talks to Lee Breuer and previews La Davina Caricatura which begins performances this Friday, December 6th at The Ellen Stewart Theatre.
“La Divina Caricatura” has a lot more than puppets. We get video, a live band, and an impressive crucifixion. There’s a quartet of male soul singers and a trio of female backup singers, in sequinned gowns. The music incorporates rhythm and blues, soul, tango, reggae, rap, Gregorian chant, French folk songs, and Indian ragas. (Breuer says that he was also influenced by ancient Indian epics such as the Mahabharata and by Disney’s animated features, especially “Snow White.”)
