5 responses to the question, ” What was the most visually arresting scene in Titus Redux?
“The best was the rape and murder as leapfrog scene.”
“I thought the choreographed dance-rape scene was poetically brutal.”
3 Tim McCarty, Artistic Director of Quest Visual Theatre (Maryland):
“Any scene without text.”
When pressed to select just one scene he chose “the brothers’ violation/mutilation of their sister.”
The first three respondents concur. The remaining 2 have other ideas.
4 Tony Frankel of Stage & Cinema:
“The opening of the family at the table with the large video projected behind it was the most visuallly exciting. But the rest of the show couldn’t live up to it.
“Best visual was the soldier dance. Five soldiers with guns, wearing camouflage fatigues dance against a bright red backdrop.”
