The Bacchae

The refocus on the classical play that takes place in modern times often coincides with times of social and political crisis. Using antiquity as a field for playing on allows a critical distance that can cast an illuminating light on modern times as well as facilitating exploration of old and new identities.The Bacchae allows its audience to explore how important it is for man to exist in balance and to see what happens when humanity tries to deny any of the sides of its nature.
