Euripides’ genre-defying classic has been hacked, warped and chopped – rebooted for the electronic age. Orestes, “the poet laureate of the internet!” is blurred and bleeding across YouTube, Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter and Tiktok. His unimaginable crime of matricide is stuck on autoplay. De-platformed, disconnected, stranded in the silence of the real, he must claw his way back online and survive there by any means necessary.
Originally slated to begin our 2020/21 Season Orestes has been completely re-imagined as a digital presentation.
