Festival TransAmériques

June 2nd to 3rd
Bacchantes - Prélude pour une purge


Marlene Monteiro Freitas

Anything goes in this haunting concert for bodies and instruments, an electrifying version of The Bacchae. This piece for thirteen dancers and musicians blows this Greek tragedy wide open, transforming it into an orgiastic carnival where order and chaos are linked together. Part rowdy, wild happening, part clamorous fanfare and Dadaist fable, this new work by Marlene Monteiro Freitas a Venice Biennial Silver Lion recipient—dazzles and delights both eye and ear, never running out of steam. Absolutely delicious.
