The Orpheus Variations
The Orpheus Variations re-imagines the classic myth of Orpheus and Eurydice in the Underworld as the tale of a transcendent sound-maker struck mute by the suicide of his lover. In a desperate attempt to reconstruct the decaying past, the sound-maker obsessively fills thousands of glass jars with single objects  keepsakes  each endowed with a singular memory of his beloved.  The Orpheus Variations is a cinema/theatre hybrid that deconstructs the classic myth from the inside out by colliding the grand narratives of Greek tragedy with the private internal narratives of modernist literature, poetry, and film.

The Deconstructive Theatre Project is a Brooklyn-based not-for-profit ensemble performance laboratory that exists to devise and premiere new multidisciplinary work.  The company is dedicated to producing performances that experiment with the relationships between theatrical vocabularies, content, and form and to providing broad community access to its process and productions.

The work is gestated over the course of one year using the company's three-stage creative model. Stage One of The Orpheus Variations will be developed from January 25  February 5.  The company will host a work-in-progress showing on February 5 from 5:00 - 6:00 PM.

The full production will premiere in New York City in autumn 2012.
