Michelangelo: painter, sculptor, architect, engineer and poet – the original, and perhaps ultimate, Renaissance man.

Michelangelo Drawing Blood delves into the forces that drove his genius – an obsession with human anatomy, a passionate response to the male body and an equally intense Christian faith.  Two male performers bring to life the fluid twists and turns of Michelangelo’s drawings accompanied by music composed by Charlie Barber and performed live on Renaissance instruments.
