In the organizer's words:
Sarah Kane radically deconstructs the ancient myth of Phaidra and, with abysmal humor, brings it to bear on post-modernity. In Kane's work, Hippolytus, the coveted stepson of Queen Phaidra, is a sex-, glutton-, and screen-addicted anti-hero, interested only in the power of manipulation, which he equates with truth. This royal family is scarred by incest and driven by a death wish. Director Robert Borgmann is known for his theatrical installations. Based on the distinct musicality of Sarah Kane's language, he composes and performs music to the text live. At the center of the production is the actress Stefanie Reinsperger.
