By Aeschylus

Translated by Robert Auletta
Directed by Mercedes Murphy

 

The Persians, the earliest Greek play to survive as a complete work, recounts how the news of an unexpected and crushing defeat of the Greek army reached the Persian imperial court. According to The Guardian, “The play's tour de force [is a] vivid, fast-moving account of one of history's great battles…Dense and muscular in its imagery, with an exotic queen, a portentous dream, a distant location and a sinister supernatural event …A troubling, masterful play [that] can also become a drama for our time.”

*No charge for University-enrolled undergraduates

World Premiere

Robert Whitman has a long history of creating non-narrative theater works that unfold in environments where multiple actions and events take place at the same time. Each member of the audience is, therefore, free to compose his or her own experience of the work. With Swim, Whitman creates a new work to be enjoyed by blind and sighted people alike. Swim will present a rich succession of images and activities in which sound, movement, and smells join the visual as equal parts of the experience. According to Whitman, “an image, an object, a performer, or an action may not be seen, but it can be heard; it can be smelled; it can be perceived and felt; and in this shared experience the audience, sighted and blind, can be brought into a single community."

*No charge for University-enrolled undergraduates
