What is O.REX?
O.REX is a brand new translation of Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex, re-envisioned as a Greek-Noir Classic. (Greek-Noir: a mash-up of Greek Tragedy & American Film Noir.) Translated from the Original Greek by Classics’ Scholar Mark Buchan and Gia Forakis, this production will take place in a nightclub. The audience will be seated at the nightclub tables, where Sophocles’ Choral Odes become acts on the nightclub stage, as the entire performance space is transformed into a black & white world of 1940-50’s film noir with cinematic underscoring, video projection and the gripping drama of the ultimate murder mystery!
