John Jahnke/Hotel Savant

The ancient Greek myth of Hylas—about an Argonaut presumed to have been abducted by water nymphs—is resuscitated by theatrical auteur John Jahnke and New York-based company Hotel Savant as a bacchic parade of fragmented poetry, psychosexual intrigue, and dance-theater-cum-art-installation. With music by Austrian electronic composer Fennesz, Alas, The Nymphs is a lurid meditation on eros and power, submerging contemporary consciousness in mythic guilts and desires.

Written and directed by John Jahnke
Original score by Fennesz
Set design by Gordon Landenberger
Video design by Josh Higgason and Andrew Schneider 
Sound design by Kristin Worrall
Costumes by Ramona Ponce
