Serpentine

an expressionistic verse tragedy

directed by Michelle Schwantes
also featuring storytelling by Christy Marie Kent and Jena Young

 

"Copulation of serpents determined my destiny. Boyish, unmanly, I
ventured, adventured my way into forests primeval; glanced down in the
dirt, in the dirt-trodden path, where I witnessed the scaly sinews of
snakes intertwining in love..."

from "Serpentine"

About the Show

 

A new expressionistic verse tragedy, in which a young boy slaughters a pair of copulating snakes, and is cursed to spend his life as a double-gendered voyeur -- a prophet, both male and female, whose visions of the future are ridiculed by their subjects.

WARNING: may contain graphic descriptions of violent and sexual acts.
