Co-presented by BAM and the Onassis Cultural Center New York
With Anne Bogart and Monica Youn
In conversation with Corey Robin
In conjunction with The Bacchae

French philosopher Michel Foucault points to a moment in Euripides’ The Bacchae when the messenger contemplates whether to report what he has witnessed for fear of enraging the king. Director Anne Bogart, poet Monica Youn, and political theorist Corey Robin examine the implications of a society governed by fear and the place of will in bringing forth truth.
