A NEW PLAY BY CLUMSY BODIES











            

Iphigenia Crash Land Falls On The Neon Shell That Was Once Her Heart (A RAVE FABLE)

Photographs by Victor Preda 

Caridad Svich’s contemporary adaptation of the perennial Greek myth that has long denied the voice of its heroine.Desperate to outrun her fate, Iphigenia finds refuge in an underground aircraft-hangar-turned-rave, where the dead come to escape the living and a world obliterated by fear.

In this multimedia journey, Iphigenia leaves behind General Adolfo, the father who wants her dead, to seek out unspoken desires and unadulterated pleasures, and survive the horrors of her past among murdered factory workers and the legendary Achilles.

Finally hear Iphigenia speak.
