A Tale of Uncertain Fruit

June 2012

Housatonic , MA

Where a lover’s body is broken apart and nearly brought to life again, where a spell is sung and woman becomes a bird, where clowns of the underworld celebrate the eros of dying, and a search for fertility in the dark yields precious yet uncertain fruit.  Isis-Chernobyl was The Ritual Theatre's first site-specific, collaboratively devised play- a fusion of the Egyptian Isis/ Osirus myth with the story of Chernobyl which imagined a post-apocalyptic paradise. It was performed under a building and a rail road bridge.
