On the river leading to hell, we meet Adam.
Adam’s destiny is doomed, but he will keep negotiating it until his last breath.
AN EVENING ON RIVER STYX is an excerpt from a play in development. The project follows the painting THE GARDEN OF EARTHLY DELIGHTS by Hieronymus Bosch, a 15th-century triptych that depicts humanity a moment before the biblical flood. The piece invites audience members to step into the world of the painting and become the people in the garden.
An Evening on River Styx is a scene from the opening of the third chapter of the play, that takes viewers on a journey into hell.
The performance took place in the swimming pool of the 14th Street Y.
The event was part of Tikkun: INTO THE DUSK at The 14th Street Y. It was developed during a fellowship at LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture.
