The Serpent by Jean-Claude van Itallie - Jean-Claude van Itallie’s ceremonial play, developed in the late 1960s with the visionary Open Theatre, juxtaposes scenes from the Bible’s "Book of Genesis" with various modern experiences. Images of the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve taking a bite from the forbidden fruit might occur alongside modern experiences, like Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I have a dream” speech. "The Serpent" is an exploration of the origins and making of the myths and communal rituals humans have always used in their attempts to make sense of events, struggles, and catastrophes from ancient to contemporary times. Award-winning director Ron Sossi and a multi-talented ensemble have created a collage of iconic, archetypal personas making up the spectacle of history, from creation to the present day. The entire experience is an exuberant, energetic, living sculpture-in-time.  More Details
