The New Stage Theatre

Theater for the New City, in association with The New Stage Theatre Company, is presenting the world premiere of "Night (Thyestes 2.0)" by Charles L. Mee, directed and designed by Ildiko Nemeth, from April 24 to May 10, 2015. The piece combines sections of the classic tale with an equally dark modern vision. Charles L. Mee imagined his play, "Night (Thyestes 2.0)," as a dance theatre piece with some text and a lot of physical performance. The piece evolved from and contains sections of the classic tale "Thyestes" by Seneca. Says Mee, “It is all nightmare and despair and darkness.” Such is the typical fare of ancients, but in a whirlwind of vivid scenes, Mee bridges the torture, murder and cannibalism dogging ill-fated Tantalus to modern plagues frightening and banal, from war crimes to YouTube vapidity. In this world premiere, The New Stage Theatre Company brings a bold mix of choreography, video projection, costuming, lighting and sound to Mee’s rhapsodic vision, resulting in a night of wonderfully disorienting theatre.
