Tabula Rasa Dance Theater presents Oedipus Rex
The World Premiere of Oedipus Rex as a dance piece and resituated in a contemporary, fictional nightspot called the Thebes Palace. Felipe Escalante, founder and artistic director, was drawn to this material because, like other plays of the time, Oedipus Rex gives audiences an opportunity to reflect on ethics and social responsibility.
Oedipus Rex will be performed by 16 dancers of varying genders, ages, and backgrounds. Hailing from 8 different countries, including Mexico, the UK, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Argentina, the Dominican Republic, and the U.S., many of these artists identify as people of color.
