The Dance of Death: A Noise Within Stages New Strindberg Translation

A Noise Within (Pasadena, CA)

"The Dance of Death"

No one drilled deeper into the underworld of human intimacy than August Strindberg. It’s there, in the pitch-black depths of the human soul, he found theatrical gold: his enduring masterpiece, The Dance of Death. Long before Before Martha ripped into George in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Alice laid deep into Edgar in this startling and ever-contemporary drama. Living on an isolated island, the deeply dissatisfied couple celebrates their silver wedding anniversary at each other’s throats in ways the amaze, repulse and engross. Now A Noise Within presents the West Coast premiere of a new translation acclaimed by The New York Times and the Chicago Tribune. Strung tense and taut, these scenes from a marriage crackle with sexual tension and spark with bursts of brilliant revelation.
