Living in Exile
April 4 - April 7, 2012
This is an extraordinary, provocative and moving experience for the boldest among you. Living in Exile is a radical retelling of Homer’s Iliad performed in a private living room. Exile marries the technology of today to one of Western civilization’s oldest accounts of war to make the connection between past and present. The entire piece creates two contradictory worlds in collision - the comfort of our living rooms, our televisions and cell phones and, in the intimacy of the performance, a deeply personal and harrowing experience of the violence of war. Living in Exile challenges us to question our indifference and disengagement from the wars being waged. For this performance the audience is seated in a living room created by The Z.
