Phaedra by Jean Racine, directed by Spencer Golub
Racine’s 1677 Phaedra, a radically modern tragedy, grows out of a landscape inspired from Greek mythology and infused with the spectacular. An anatomy of anxiety and desire, it is a masterpiece of the human mind on the edges of madness and the ruin of reason by uncontrollable and fragmenting passion.
In Phaedra’s world, the sleepless place that is the stage becomes a space for the exploration of prohibition, guilt, repression, surveillance, and the unending game of power.
