Culture Project to Present Yael Farber's MoLaRa logo
Culture Project's Women Center Stage will present the New York premiere of MoLoRa, adapted and directed from the Oresteia trilogy by Yael Farber. It will run June 30-July 24 at the Ailey Citigroup Theater at The Joan Weill Center for Dance, with an opening set for July 6.

The production comes from South Africa, where the Farber Foundry originally presented it at the Market Theatre in Johannesburg. Set after the fall of apartheid, MoLoRa reimagines the ancient Greek Oresteia to tell the story of her own country's painful and extraordinary transition to democracy.

As Klytemnestra and Elektra -- mother and daughter, perpetrator and victim -- sit to face each other in an open hearing, MoLoRa reenacts a watershed moment in world history, illuminating the universal and excruciating choice for any victim: to seek revenge or choose forgiveness.
