"FURY", an Experimental Theatrical Performance Directed by PlySpace Resident Fellow Derek Spencer

FURY adapts the classic Greek tragedy The Eumenides for a contemporary context. Spencer and his ensemble of BSU acting students draw on physical theater, immersive performance techniques, and improvisation to examine the role of anger in judicial reform. As Athena gathers her jury for the first ever trial, the Furies, ancient gods of anger, eagerly await the execution of the matricidal Orestes. True justice, however, may be more complicated than a simple verdict.

Originally devised with the ensemble and performed in an ornate Masonic temple, Fury asks audiences to examine their own relationship to justice, reform, and authority. Audiences may be directly interacted with by performers in this site-specific, immersive performance.

FURY will run for four nights at Cornerstone Center for the Arts. The opening night will be Thursday, April 21, 2022,  followed by performances on Friday, April 22, 2022 and Saturday, April 23, 2022. The final performance will be on Sunday, April 24, 2022. All performances will be held in the Heritage Room on the second floor of Cornerstone Center for the Arts at 7:30pm. Tickets are $5.00 per person and are available for purchase online at www.plyspace.org/events.
