Corpus Delicti refers to crime’s body, not just to the corpse itself but to the related body of evidence.
I would love to see this play wich is a free play that uses real-life ballistig gel cadaver to explore art & science of anatom as practiced in Holland during the Age of Enlightenment, and immortalized in Rembrandt’s 1632 painting “The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Tulp” (one of my favorites paintings).
In Corpus Delicti: Just Desserts, the protagonist is Dr. Nicholas Tulp (Larry Underwood), guides audiences through the taboo territory of the body’s interior, inviting them to witness the dissection of a life-sized cadaver made up of ballistic gel and vegetables as internal organs.
A “post-mortem” panel discussion with researchers, ethicists, artists and members of the cast will be held after the performance.
The play is produced by Local Infinities Visual Theater. I accept invitations.
