Bacchae (2018)

Dramatic performance with elements of audiovisual art and performance.

The ancient myth of Dionysus depicts the struggle between the desire for order and the freedom of chaos, which still exists today in the simultaneous existence of fundamentalist sects and underground partys. Four hours with Euripides, performers, music composed especially for the exhibition, and unique work with light, scents, and space allow the viewer to experience the master’s experience through the means of modern theater.
