Blood Water Paint
What You'll Get
Macha Theatre Works presents Blood Water Paint by Joy McCullough, directed by Amy Poisson, at the 12th Avenue Arts Studio. Blood Water Paint is an audaciously imaginative and unflinching portrayal of Artemisia Gentileschi, an Italian Baroque painter now considered one of the most accomplished of her generation. At a time when female artists were afforded no opportunities, Artemisia’s extraordinary talent earns her the recognition of Rome’s elite. Her father, Tuscan painter Orazio Gentileschi, hires a colleague to tutor his daughter. Instead, he rapes her. Refusing to stay silent about the assault, Artemisia takes her rapist to trial. Based on true events, Blood Water Paint unfolds lyrically through interactions with the women featured in Artemisia’s most famous paintings, and culminates in her fierce battle to rise above the most devastating event in her life and fight for justice despite horrific consequences.
