Oedipus at Tate Britain
Apocalyptic Cybernetic Theatre ACT – OEDIPUS
Tate Britain, Duveens Gallery, 4 November
A post-apocalyptic sci-fi adaptation of Seneca’s Oedipus.
OEDIPUS is a multimedia theatre work where both performers and audience are transported into an imaginary world full of high-tech intrigue, low-tech crime, and traces of uncorrupted love.
Over the evening, as the narrative unfolds we find ourselves in an abandoned art gallery in the year 2027 in a post-apocalyptic setting in which the gallery Tate Britain have been transformed into an overcrowded refugee camp.
Studio for Electronic Theatre is a joint initiative of the ICAS - University of Greenwich; tg Cactusbloem, Antwerp (Belgium); Magadatt, Amsterdam (NL); and PVC-T, Novi Sad (Serbia)
