New York Live Arts 50 & Change Commission
Ann Liv Young brings her uncompromising vision of Sophocles’ Elektra to the stage in her first American commission since 2008. Known for creating work that’s “brilliant at one moment, perverse the next” (The New York Times), Young re-mixes Greek ritual in her incomparable style by combining passages from three distinct translations. Surrounded by a family steeped in murder, revenge and deception, Ann Liv Young’s Elektra is crazed, authentic, honest, compassionate, steadfast and tragic - a young woman struggling for footing in a shifting, murky world, which she navigates with imperfect tools. Exploring the tipping point between following the social flow, and being an engaged, responsible and decisive agent, Elektra wants everyone to question, to pay attention, let go of the yoke of social norms and act as an engaged individual.
