About The Performance
Columbia University School of the Arts presents Phaedra’s Love, a directing thesis production by current student Danica Selem.
Experience the haunting intensity of Sarah Kane’s Phaedra’s Love, a gripping theatrical masterpiece that flips inside out the very abject nature of the most elemental epitome of human relations – a family. In Kane’s blunt and vulgar adaptation of Seneca’s Phaedra, a seemingly joyous birthday celebration descends into a harrowing tale of passion, delusion, domination, and the tangled webs of human brutality.
Please note this production contains graphic and strong language, nudity, sexual acts, portrayal of sexual violence (including rape), use of stage blood, violence, portrayed death and suicide, and usage of strobing lights and flashing lights.
