BREAKDOWN

THE NOTEBOOKS OF LEONARDO DA VINCI
The Notebooks Of Leonardo Da Vinci is entirely comprised from bits and pieces of the 5,000 looseleaf notebook pages left behind by Leonardo, and in script form reads like nothing much, but the staging is quite elaborate, sometimes seeking to clarify the text, sometimes pointing up the hopelessness (which Leonardo himself sometimes felt) of trying to describe accurately the entire world through either scientific or artistic means. Just as on individual notebook pages Leonardo would combine mathematical problems in one corner with philosophical reflection in another, and a drawing of an angel looking over both, the stage is sometimes occupied by multiple events. Although the piece is "non-narrative" it ends up telling a sort of story all the same. All performers are all equally Leonardo, and just as importantly, they are all equally themselves.
