SITI Company

The Bacchae

Saturday, October 26, 2019 at 7:30 pm

In this new English translation and innovative take on one of the Western world's greatest dramas, SITI Company invites us to Thebes where Dionysus - god of wine, ritual madness, fertility, and theater (and in this production imagined as a rock star of the first order) - is opposed and imprisoned by King Pentheus. The struggle between wildness and order (and frivolity and seriousness) is at the heart of this play, which still resonates all these centuries later - and perhaps at this moment in particular.

SITI Company's famed co-artistic director Anne Bogart will be on hand to participate in a variety of residency events, including a post-performance conversation with the audience.
