Big Dance Theater

Big Dance Theater’s newest creation uses poet Ann Carson’s fresh adaptation of Euripides’ Alkestis, a rarely performed but profound exploration of death, selfishness, and self-sacrifice. The piece, which shows off the company’s seamless mix of multimedia performance, includes a Greek dance chorus, song, and soundscapes by Pulitzer Prize–winning composer David Lang (Bang on a Can All-Stars).
