WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Luis Alfaro's transformation of Sophocles' Greek classic, Electra takes a contemporary look at revenge and its effects on family and community. The desert is on fire. It's being consumed by fury as Electricidad, burning with hatred, keeps vigil by her murdered father's corpse. She longs for the sweet revenge that will set his spirit free. When her brother Orestes returns from exile, Electricidad's anger explodes, consuming everything in its path and leading her family to a final shattering confrontation. Subtitled "a Chicano take on Sophocles' Electra," Electricidad crackles with intensity, and transforms a 2000-year-old text into a vibrant, vital and thoroughly unforgettable myth for the modern age. Lisa Peterson directs.
