The Bacchae

RUNNING TIME
1hr. 25min.
Closed

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Dionysus: our hero, a gender-fluid god, both loving and murderous.

The Bacchae: our heroines, ecstatic followers of the Dionysian cult.

Pentheus: our villian, logical; secular.

Euripdes: a 5th-century BCE writer who defies modern sensibilities. Is The Bacchae liberation theology or a celebration of religious zealotry?

With their highly-charged and entertaining style of physical theatre, Faux-Real explores the precarious zone between freedom and fanaticism.
