HELL is the first part of a trilogy about self-discovery based on Dante’s "Inferno", a journey into human error. It was followed by CONFESSIONS, an exploration of the writings of Saint Augustine, about the western concept of the soul, and it will be followed by DREAMS, a piece inspired by the work of Sigmund Freud when he was on the brink of his intuitions about the Unconscious.

We are a theatrical company that brings to the present works from the classical tradition. We call our pieces "theatrical collages" because they stem from a variety of musical, poetic and acting styles. They are often set against a backdrop of images taken from high-art and popular culture and framed by complex lighting, but they depend on austere costume, stage-setting and design.
We are a handful of artists wishing to make the public ponder and laugh, blending vaudeville, contemporary multimedia and a few tricks we imagine the actors of old would have used, had they worked in small theaters and had no need for masks.

Selected as one of Best American Short Plays 2006-2007.

General information

PRODUCTIONS HELL HELL was the first part of a trilogy about self-discovery. It was based on Dante's journey into human error, Inferno. It was followed by CONFESSIONS, a piece inspired by the writings of Saint Augustine. DREAMS, a play derived from the early work of Sigmund Freud, when he was on the brink of his "discovery" of the Unconscious, will conclude the trilogy. AND THEN, Five one-woman monologues about contemporary tragedies inspired by Euripides’ Medea. A Palestinian terrorist. A ninth-grade teacher and child molester. An American soldier based at Abu Ghraib. A mother who drowns her children. A woman who commits suicide in order to frame her husband for murder. These pieces are set against a backdrop of projected fine-arts and mass-media images. Costume changes take place on stage and choreographed to sections of Cherubini’s Medea. AND THEN, was selected as one of Best American Short Plays 2006-2007 Edited by Barbara Parisi, Applause books 2010, New York. CONFESSIONS A play about Augustine of Hippo, a writer who lived during the late Roman Empire, better known as a saint and as a pivotal figure in Western thinking. This is not a work about religion or philosophy. CONFESSIONS is a few artists' exploration of the life of a young man, sensuous and ambitious, in search of what he called his "homminis interioris" - the lover within. A singer, a cellist and a dancer bring to life a variety of characters in Augustine's world and tell us the story of how a man followed the call of a strange force inside himself, who spoke to him out loud. ANTINOUS A tragic love story about the boy who became Emperor Hadrian´s page and paramour. ANTINOUS is the tale of the deep bond between a middle-aged man and a teenager, about their passion, but it is also a look into politics, and into power and powerlessness.
