About: Euripides' The Bacchae

Critically acclaimed theatre company Fourth Monkey return to London hot on the heels of their successful October season of Repertory work. Following their critically acclaimed sell-out runs of Anthony Burgess’ A Clockwork Orange in 2010/2011 (London and Edinburgh Festival).

Now returning to the intimate, unconventional Theatro Technis in Camden, with set design by Eleanor Field (RADA, Old Vic Tunnels), costume design by Zahra Mansouri (Jermyn Street Theatre, NT, Her Majesty's Theatre) and with lighting designer, Pablo Fernando-Baz (Oval House), that will literally transform the stage, by raising the floor and introducing a conceptual lighting and set design. The company of 27 actors, 3 directors and a myriad of creative talent will present a repertory season of three plays, contrasting in style and substance, exploring themes still relevant to modern society.

With a new translation by Ranjit Bolt, this version of the Bacchae will emphasise the need to break free of convention to satisfy primal human instinct ; with the use of rhyme and physical theatre. Conceptually set at a music festival in the forest with contemporary costuming by Zahra Mansouri, it showcases Dionysus as the epitome of the ultimate rock star and the pitfalls of succumbing to desire & decadence. Under the direction of Greek native Natalie Katsou, Fourth Monkey's take on this ancient classic will combine its Hellenic roots with the extremities of modern day society.
