This is a full length verse translation/adaptation of Dante’s first book of his Divine Comedy – Inferno. Confronted by his fears and sins, in the figures of three wild beasts, Dante cannot make it up the mountain to the light (Heaven). As he flees down the mountain he is met by the shade of the Roman poet Virgil who tells him the only way to Heaven is to journey through Hell and then Purgatory. In this multi-media piece of performance art, we follow Dante and Virgil through the nine circles of Hell as they encounter various sinners who are being punished by various demons and other ingenious forms of torture. Before they make it out of Hell they must confront Satan. The performance will include dance, projections, puppets, lighting effects, music, and more.
