θεατρο 1

Raving Reason is a new play inspired by Euripides’The Bacchae, in which the god Dionysus’ world of instinct and the senses clashes disastrously with the world of rationality. The play touches on a contemporary concern: how does our technology-enabled way of life affect our nature as human beings? What happens when there is disharmony between the rational and the natural? The play takes place in a dystopic near-future world in which climatic calamities and technological advances have caused the human senses to atrophy. The characters, addicted to technology and alienated from nature, struggle with a worldview that deifies rationality, technocracy and efficiency and vilifies intuition and feeling.
