      From the hands of visionary director Tadashi Suzuki comes a masterful, cross-cultural adaptation of Greek tragedy, The Bacchae, featuring an impressive cast of Indonesian, Japanese and Chinese actors.

      Written near the end of his life, The Bacchae has been hailed as one of Athenian playwright Euripides’ greatest dramas. Dionysus – the God of wine – unleashes his plot to punish Pentheus, King of Thebes, for denying Dionysus’s divinity. Madness ensues as Dionysus lures Pentheus to his death, torn to pieces by feverish worshippers, including his own mother, Agave.

      One of the most revered voices in theatre today, Suzuki is an eloquent interpreter of Greek tragedy for the contemporary stage. In a unique collaboration with art production house Purnati Indonesia, Suzuki continues to break new ground as he re-envisions this ancient conflict of madness and reason through an intriguing Pan-Asian lens.

      Performed in Batak, Japanese, Javanese, Madurese, Manado, Mandarin, Rejang, Sundanese with English surtitles.
