This Summer @ The Ice Factory 2015
Written and Directed by Jesse Freedman
Presented by the New Ohio Ice Factory Festival
A dance theater adaptation of the Euripides’ tragedy, The Bacchae, imagined in a sports bar on karaoke night during the Stanley Cup. Karaoke is canceled to watch the game. The god Dionysus takes the human form of Iggy Pop and leads a horde of drunken sorority girls and cocktail waitress’ into a battle of submission for control of the karaoke machine, against the bars sado-masochistic management. Sung and shouted under the ultimate karaoke playlist, driven by dance and features text from Drunk J. Crew, deranged sorority girl email, and a sexually frustrated drunken high school english teacher.
