#BacchaeToo is a re-telling of arguably Euripides’ greatest work, The Bacchae. In the original Greek tragedy, the women of the City of Thebes have escaped to a nearby mountain to celebrate the god Dionysus, as part of the god’s plan to vindicate his mother. The new King of Thebes finds his authority threatened by these women, and the story ends in gruesome tragedy.
In the age of the #MeToo movement, the influence of social media, and agenda-based news reporting, this modern adaption of The Bacchae, we will make use of live theatre and video projection to explore whether the story is still relevant today in the struggle for Women, Life and Freedom.
