ABOUT THE SHOW

Alternating dialogue with Bakkhic women's odes of song and speak chorus, this new version of Euripides' text by Anne Carson brings Greek tragedy to life. Dionysos weaves his spell in the land of Thebes, seeking revenge on those who refuse to honor him. A cappela four-part harmony singing punctuates text in this living version of ancient myth, as the house of Pentheus falls. These interactions between humans, the god Dionysos, and the Bakkhai, with their connection to the Mother, bring up questions of humanity and our place in the spiritual realm.
