CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS:
a new version by Lane Anthony Flores
2022 SCS/AIA Annual Meeting (San Francisco), January 5–8, 2022 (exact time TBD).
Directed by Lane Anthony Flores
The Committee on Ancient and Modern Performance presents hippolytos, the first of a new triptych of plays, collectively titled a Queer Dionysia, aiming to investigate queer storytelling and history with regard to modern perspectives and ancient conversations. It tells the story of a young loner who experiences epiphany as they seek to reconcile the violence of a binary world and the fact of their own existence. Set during the siege of Athens by the Amazons, this new adaptation of the myth of Hippolytos features modern elements and contemporary language while utilizing heightened verse and ancient dramatic structures.
Actors from every background are welcome, and no previous experience required! If you are interested in giving CAMP a first-time try, there is the opportunity for silent roles to be made available as well.
