Intrigued by an account of a stable boy who blinded six horses, Peter Shaffer investigates the mystery of this brutal crime in his sensationally theatrical psychological thriller. Equus delves deeply into the psyche of the 17-year-old boy and his brilliant psychiatrist as playwright Shaffer explores society’s ideas of madness and normality, erotic passion, our human capacity for worship, and the compulsion for mediocrity to destroy genius.

South Africa’s Via Katlehong Dance likes to mix things up. Originally formed through an outreach program for youth during the Apartheid era, Via Katlehong’s high-energy style is an energetic brew of Pantsula (street dance) and Gumboot (rhythmic physical percussion). By combining the group’s powerhouse style with dynamite vocal performances of traditional folk music, a fresh and inventive look at modern South Africa is born.
 
Produced by Damien Valette Productions. Co-produced by Via Katlehong Dance, Peak Performances at Montclair State, Théâtre national de Chaillot, and Scéne nationale d'Orléans. Supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

*No charge for University-enrolled undergraduates
