When a new god - the god of the life force, the god of sensuality, wine and the dance, the god that other religions fear - arrives in a buttoned-down world, he finds a leader who no longer believes in a power higher than himself, who will do whatever it takes to preserve the status quo. But this society is a ticking time bomb, revolution is in the air and the people are desperate for change. A band of sisters are ready to explode and destroy everyone and everything that gets in their way in Mike Poulton's all-new version of this dark and liberating play, coconceived with choreographer Mark Bruce and director Braham Murray.

"


"'Mike Poulton is responsible for this lean, muscular new translation - Conceived as a ritualistic horror story featuring a few pagan rhythmic dance passages, this strong production also serves as a sober but sometimes grimly comic warning' TheTimes 'Written 2,500 years ago, Euripides' play can still shake you like an earthquake. Like Shakespeare, he is not our contemporary, but speaks to us as if he were' Sunday Times 'The play is sublime - Riveting' Observer '"This is a composed, restrained, often beautiful and mainly lucid account of the play - Poulton's version is lush, lyrical, witty and inventive' Daily Telegraph"
