Oedipus at Tate Britain
Salihbegović, Nuno (2011) Oedipus at Tate Britain. [Performance]Full text not available from this repository.
A post-apocalyptic sci-fi adaptation of Seneca’s Oedipus.
OEDIPUS is a multimedia theatre work where both performers and audience are transported into an imaginary world full of high-tech intrigue, low-tech crime, and traces of uncorrupted love.
Over the evening, as the narrative unfolds we find ourselves in an abandoned art gallery in the year 2027 in a post-apocalyptic setting in which the gallery Tate Britain have been transformed into an overcrowded refugee camp.
