The Bacchae by Euripides

Cyprus : The Bacchae by Euripides

International Festival of Ancient Greek Drama
YAIR SHERMAN ENSEMBLE – ISRAEL

The award-winning Israeli director, Yair Sherman, presents Euripides’ Bacchae in a contemporary reading of the play, an exciting directing approach and a highly aesthetic artistic result, in the production that gave him the “Golden Porcupine – Director of the Year”, for 2016.

In Bacchae, one of the most complete and enigmatic plays of world dramaturgy, Dionysus is starring as a humanized god, penetrating as a new force to enforce his own worship. In a game of couplings and transformations, myth and history meet the poetic rebirth, while unexpectedly the tragic, the dramatic and the theatrical element coexist. God Dionysus abolishes the boundaries between people, social order, gender, age, and even the difference between human and divine qualities. The city that denies his existence will experience the power and dominance of God through a mysterious, dark and bloody nightmare.
