Persians September 2014

Persians by Aeschylus is the earliest know extant play in the European cannon. A deeply mysterious play written in a time when theater as we know it was still being born, about a hubris riddled civilization that was being destroyed by the culture which created the play.

Steel Hammer March 2014
The project was born in a conversation between the composer Julia Wolfe, one of the three composers of Bang on a Can , and Anne Bogart.  Julia had written an oratorio entitled Steel Hammer and we began to discuss collaboration between SITI Company and the Bang on a Can All Stars towards a music theater piece that would transform Julia’s oratorio into a dramatic music-theater piece. 

The work premiered at Actors Theatre of Louisville’s Humana Festival of New American Plays in 2014, with recorded music. Now, this fall SITI and the musicians of the Bang on a Can All-Stars will collaborate to create the fullest version yet of this music-theater piece. This complete realization of Steel Hammer will have its first performance at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, before touring around the country throughout the fall.
