THE WRECK

OVERVIEW

This performance will not have English supertitles. The spoken text of the performance will be in English. The music will be in various languages.

SUMMARY

Created on-site in Omaha, The Wreck is an original and immersive production that uses the Slavic mythology of the Rusalka and mermaid folklore to examine themes of feminine experience including longing, escape, fear, rage, and the rituals of farewell and departure. The Wreck pulls inspiration from a collage of striking texts including the work of Anne Sexton, Alice Walker, and Adrienne Rich blended with music by composers including Donizetti, Schubert, and Von Bingen, as well as new compositions by eclectic Ukrainian composer Mariana Sadovska.
