The ancient and the modern collide in Charles Mee's richly poetic gender study, THE BACCHAE 2.1. In addition to Euripides' text, the script draws from German literary theorist Klaus Theweleit's MALE FANTASIES, Valerie Solanas' The S.C.U.M. MANIFESTO and Joan Nestle's LESBIAN HERSTORY ARCHIVES. All find their place in this highly sensual theatrical celebration of the god Dionysus. THE BACCHAE 2.1 features original music written by Anthony Di Bartolo, performed by a live ensemble including guest artists Douglas Mapp, Adeline Tomasone, Tim Schwarz and Dean Witten of the Rowan Music Faculty.
