April-May 2015: Night (Thyestes 2.0) Theater Play

Theater for the New City
From April 24 to May 10, 2015

The New Stage Theatre Company is presenting the world premiere of "Night (Thyestes 2.0)", a movement theatre piece written by Charles L. Mee with projection design and Visuals by Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger. Inspired by Seneca's Thyestes, the piece combines sections of the classic tale with an equally dark modern vision. A whirlwind of vivid scenes bridges the torture, murder and cannibalism dogging ill-fated Tantalus to modern plagues both frightening and banal, from war crimes to YouTube vapidity. This world premiere performance brings a bold mix of standout projection design and visuals, choreography, costuming, lighting and sound to Mee’s rhapsodic vision, resulting in a night of wonderfully disorienting theatre.
