Thy wisdom is no wisdom… A god in human form establishes his cult in Thebes. Announcing himself–“Lo! I Dionysus son of Zeus am come to this land of Thebes”–he will exact vengeance on the royal family of his mother, Semele, who would not believe she bore the son of Zeus. Nature competes reason and the religious experience of the bakkheia evolves into a ritualistic rending and devouring of raw flesh, an allusion to the cycle of death and rebirth.

Armed with a powerful cast and a willingness to take directorial risks, Angela Brouskou takes on the Bacchae (405 BC) in Giorgos Cheimonas’ translation. The adversaries, Dionysus and Pentheas, are played respectively by Aglaia Pappa and Aristeidis Servetalis.

The performance is presented in Greek, with english surtitles
