Oedipus Rex XX/XY. . .

Oedipus Rex XX/XY. . .

Driven by the notion that what was traditional in 429 BCE is radical today, The Faux-Real Theatre Company performs Oedipus exactly as Sophocles intended& sort of. Utilizing bouzoukis, drums, platform shoes, an ecstatic chorus, and an all-male cast, Faux-Real reincarnates the revelations of the ancients. Only, this all-male cast is spearheaded by a woman. What happens when Oedipus is played by a woman and Jocasta is a man? Searching beyond the Freudian interpretation (boy loves mom) Faux-Real re-examines Oedipus with modern eyes and ancient techniques, uncovering fearful truths and grotesque ironies that Sophocles presented audiences 2000 years before the birth of psychology. Building upon their previous works, FUNBOX and Shakespeares Haunted House, Faux-Real applies their boundary-breaking aesthetic to the ancients.
