Underworld Anthem

Orpheus waltzes into the Underworld for real this time, no tinkering with its facsimile in his desires or in his head. Under his bed now lurk real monsters—how will he escape with the one he loves? What awaits him way across the Styx River? Underworld Anthem pushes us through the looking-glass and throws away the key.

Through a curated cycle of poems by Alexandra Ranieri, director Iris Sowlat and the ensemble explore the many facets of Orpheus’ journey into the Underworld. The play explores what compels one to seek the Underworld, to leave it, to relish it, to rule it, to create within it, to give oneself to it, and to attempt to escape. This devised piece includes Ranieri’s poetry, an actual Orphic hymn to Persephone, translated sections of Ovid’s Orpheus and Eurydice, original music, dance, and more!
