Coming Up On The Block
575 Metropolitan Ave, BK, NY
is a contemporary performance based on Sophocles' Oedipus Cycle. The performance focuses on the themes embodied by three characters in the ancient dramas – Oedipus, Jocasta, and Antigone.
Created through a long-term process of video improvisation, Theban Plays seeks to find the place where the themes of Sophocles' drama resonate in the lives of the ensemble and those around us living in New York City in 2016. The performers each create a unique and distinct theatrical world using live webcast (Oedipus), sound installation and live painting (Jocasta), and Super 8mm films (Antigone), while directly engaging the audience in conversation.
