by Pier Paolo Pasolini/English Translation by Adam Paolozza & Coleen MacPherson
directed by Ivica Buljan
Pasoliniís PYLADE, a contemporary reinterpretation of the relationship between Pylades and Orestes from Greek mythology and the ORESTEIA, is a poetic, tragic meditation on democracy, consumerism, and the struggle for real social change. The rhythm and emotion of Pasoliniís text, translated into English by Adam Paolozza and Coleen MacPherson, is heightened by the music and movement incorporated into this production by Buljan and GJRC, to create a total theatre of movement, text, spectacle and music. The Great Jones Repertory Company, the legendary troupe (founded by La MaMa's late founder Ellen Stewart, director Andrei Serban, and composer Elizabeth Swados) will collaborate with Croatian director Ivica Buljan on the U.S. Premiere of Pasoliniís play, Pylades, based on the Oresteia. The Pylade cast features guest Slovenian actor, Marko Mandić as Pylade with Great Jones Rep company members Mia Yoo, Perry Yung, Chris Wild, Cary Gant, Eugene the Poogene, Maura Donahue, Valois Mickens, John Gutierrez, and Tunde Sho as Orestes.
