The Los Angeles-based Poor Dog Group will kick off the Getty Villa's annual Villa Theater Lab Series, with excerpts from Satyr Atlas on Friday, February 4.

This new satyr play on ancient themes is written and directed by Poor Dog Group's artistic director Jesse Bonnell, based on texts by Euripides. The cast will include Cat Ventura (Pelopia), Jonathon Ahmanson (Silenus), John Kern (Thyestes), Jesse Saler (Atreus), Condola Rashad (Aerope), Andrew Gilbert (Aegisthos), Jessica Emmanuel (Oracle/Echo), Itamar Stern (The First Actor), and Brad Culver (Dionysos).

The creative team will include Stacy Dawson Stearns (Movement), Peter Mayer (Composer), Andrew Gilbert (Music Direction), Adam Hunter (Lighting Design), Efren Delgadillo, Jr. (Set Design), Leah Piehl (Costume Design), E. M. Gimenez (Sound Design), and Matthew Mellinger (Video Design).

The Villa Theater Lab Series features works-in-progress versions of new translations of Greek and Roman plays as well as contemporary works inspired by ancient theater. Each team of artists-in-residence is provided with time, space, and production support by the Museum - both during and in advance of the period of residency - allowing for far broader and deeper experimentation than would a traditional play-reading format.
