Description: The company makes its Joyce debut with the world premiere of Bacchae, a stunning work that delves into the balance between order and chaos. For this evening-length production, Resident Artistic Director Luca Veggetti collaborates with a cast of twelve dancers, composer Paolo Aralla, a flautist, and a puppeteer to create a dynamic new staging of the dance-driven classic Greek play. With this contemporary interpretation of Euripides' timeless tale, the company, applauded by the Los Angeles Times for "its willingness to soften the very edges of radicalism, to make peace between modernity and traditionalism," demonstrates its commitment to bringing exceptional artists and dancers together in performance.
