“I am Dionysus. I am the Scream”
Translation by David Greig, directed by Max Hafler.
Dionysus is the God of wine, madness and theatre. His tale explores the inevitable catastrophe that will ensue should we disobey or disparage nature. The Bacchae is an eye-opening theatrical experience, which exposes the potential consequences that may arise as a result of ignoring the darker side of ourselves.
Performed by final year and MA students of the Drama programme at NUI Galway.
