In conjunction with Phaedra(s)
A program of the Brooklyn Book Festival

Co-presented by BAM and the Onassis Cultural Center New York
Part of Onassis Programs at BAM
With Charles Mee and Caridad Svich Moderated by Kaneza Schaal

In conjunction with the BAM Next Wave Festival’s upcoming presentation of Phaedra(s), this program will explore how the myth of Phaedra has been reimagined across media to reflect contemporary society, and the timeless truths it continues to reveal. Theater artist Kaneza Schaal moderates a conversation between playwright Charles Mee, whose many reinterpretations of the classics include True Love—based on Euripides' Hippolytus and Racine's Phaedra—and playwright Caridad Svich, author of several plays that radically riff on ancient Greek drama, including The Orphan Sea and the collection Blasted Heavens.
