Galasso returns to ODC Theater with Of Iron and Diamonds V3, a multi-chapter performance work based on Boccaccio’s The Decameron, a satirical collection of urban tales published in the 14th century. Working with a group of San Francisco based artists, this local chapter is built using the unique qualities of individual cast members to reveal a collective humanity. Of Iron and Diamonds reveals a sharply present, whimsical take on Boccaccio’s seminal work, while remaining reflective of a contemporary approach to performance rooted in the avant-garde, cinematic tableaux, and nonlinear narratives.
