Description

By Heinrich von Kleist
Directed by Pirachula Chulanon
Thu-Sat, Apr 12-14, 7:30pm
Heinrich von Kleist's celebrated 1808 play about a corrupt village judge and the mysterious case of a broken jug is reimagined in a contemporary, experimental theater performance and a refreshing new translation from the German. Puppetry, sound installation, and choral performance bring out the allegorical resonances of Judge Adam's Fall from Eden with Eve, and his Oedipal fall from his seat of authority.
Students featured: Marissa Fenley (Actress), Ella Wilhelm (Dramaturg), Ena Marija Gojak (Assistant Director)
