WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Acclaimed puppet artist and director Theodora Skipitares presents The Exiles -- a new adaptation of the Orestes/Electra myth about a brother and sister who avenge the murder of their father and become outcasts in their own city. Designed, directed and adapted by Ms. Skipitares, The Exiles is produced by LaMaMa E.T.C. and Skysaver Productions. Based on Euripides' Orestes, and inspired by John Paul Sartre's The Flies, The Exiles unfolds using video projections, masks and puppetry -- including five-foot Bunraku puppets strapped to the front of actors' bodies at the head, the chest, the waist and the knees. Veiled actors speak lines from behind the puppet, much as an actor might have spoken lines from behind a large Greek mask in ancient Greek theatre.
