Abstract:
Composed entirely of fragments from the lost plays of Sophocles, Requiem resurrects random moments of ordinary, mundane, extinct daily life. As one of the characters says, "Time makes all things dark and brings them to oblivion. First you will see a crop in flower, all white; then a round mulberry that has turned red; lastly old age of Egyptian blackness takes over." [9 actors]
