BroadwayWorld covers the US premier of PYLADE by Pier Paolo Pasolini. Directed by Ivica Buljan, the cast includes leading actor of the Slovenian National Theatre, Marco Mandic joining members of The Great Jones Repertory Company, including La MaMa's Artistic Director, Mia Yoo, Perry Yung, Cary Gant, Eugene the Poogene, Maura Donahue, Valois Mickens, John Gutierrez, Chris Wild and Tunde Sho.
"Pasolini's PYLADE, a contemporary reinterpretation of the relationship between Pylades and Orestes from Greek mythology and the ORESTEIA, is a poetic, tragic meditation on democracy, consumerism, and the struggle for real social change. The rhythm and emotion of Pasolini's text, translated into English by Adam Paolozza and Coleen MacPherson, is heightened by the music and movement incorporated into this production by Buljan and GJRC, to create a total theatre of movement, text, spectacle and music. "The re-construction" of democracy was of principal interest to Pasolini," stated Mr. Buljan."
PLYADE plays The Ellen Stewart Theater from December 3 - 18, 2015 for 10 performances only.
