WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The world premiere of a trenchant play by legendary Susan Sontag is brought to life in a visionary staging by John Jahnke, founder of The Hotel Savant and former member of Reza Abdoh's Dar a Luz. In this poetic yet gritty deconstruction of the opera, Wagner's innocent knight is instead an Uzi-toting soldier seeking arbitrary sex and violence. Jahnke crafts a phantasmagoric epic in which to pit the individual against the system and pose Sontag's unflinching questions of consequence, accountability and blame. Featuring Black Eyed Susan, Michael Balsley and Okwui Okpokwasili.
