Elektra

by Text adaptation of Euripides' "Elektra" by Wlodzimierz Staniewski

directed by Wlodzimierz Staniewski

The world renowned Polish theater company Garzienice Center for Theatre Practices, founded and led by Wlodzimierz Staniewski, returns to LaMaMa to debut April 7 to 24 with "Elektra" by Euripides. The company last appeared in NY in 2001 with "Metamorphosis" at LaMaMa, a production which played to standing room houses for two weeks only. Their premier of "Elektra" continues Mr. Staniewski's exploration of Ancient Greek music and iconography and explores such profound themes as the misery of exile, the craving of revenge, the taboo of incest and the endless struggle for freedom. Gardzienice has been credited with creating a unique genre of theatrical culture based on musicality, theatrical dynamism, and gesture. Staniewski's work is known for its synchronistic interweaving of text, gesture and body movement.
