The New Stage Theatre Company is proud to present the world premiere of "Night (Thyestes 2.0)", a multimedia movement theater piece written by Charles L. Mee and directed by Ildiko Nemeth, 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 theater.
Directed by Ildiko Nemeth in collaboration with:
Laia Cabrera & Isabelle Duverger - Visuals and Projection Design
Federico Restrepo - Lighting
Egle Paulauskaite - Costume
Galway McCullough - Fight Choreography
Jon Gilbert Leavitt - Sound Engineering
