extreme lyric I
PREMIERES OCTOBER 4-6, 2018
Co-produced by ODC Theater
For HMD's 11th home season, Artistic Director Mohr will premiere a new work inspired by and featuring Anne Carson's translations of Sappho. The new work has an all-female cast and will be performed in the round. As with others on the margins of history, Sappho’s story is not ready-made. extreme lyric I will explore the nature of the fragment through premature endings, gaps inside movement and partial visibility. The work features featuring an all-star team of collaborators, including playwright Mia Chung, visual designer Joan Osato, set designer Tanya Orellana and costume designer Tiffany Amundson.
