Orpheus: Featuring DJ Puzzle as Fate, as presented by the Filament Theatre Ensemble, is a brave retelling of Ovid's heart wrenching love story. As the musical pulse of Chicago's own DJ Puzzle lights up the darkness, the lines between nightclub and theater begin to twist and bend. In this modern version of the classic myth, our DJ takes on the role of Fate, spinning together the lives of the musically gifted Orpheus and his beloved Eurydice. A Greek chorus of hip-hop dancing Nymphs transform Chicago's extraordinary new creative space, the Lacuna Artist Lofts, into a wild celebration of Dionysus. The grotesque henchmen of Hades, however, have their own plans for the evening, and have risen up to take Eurydice deep into The Underworld - where Orpheus and the audience must dare to follow. Presented by Filament Theatre Ensemble Apr 22 - May 28, 2011 Fridays: 9:00pm Saturdays: 9:00pm Lacuna Artist Loft Studios 2150 South Canalport Chicago
