“The Decameron,” written in 1348 during the Black Plague in Florence, Italy, is the inspiration for this modern and provocative series of reimagined stories of Giovanni Boccaccio. Students, under the direction of Sal Trapani and collaborating with a team of designers and technicians, have devised original pieces which include an adult puppet show, a short musical, a series of dance pieces, short comedic and dramatic films, new songs, unique storytelling, a Zoom play, performance art and some surprise performances. A daring and entertaining event, not to be missed.
