Jean-Paul Sartre’s adaptation of Euripides’ classic story of war highlights the fragility of self and will be contextualized in the modern age of media, where the struggle for integrity is challenged by horrific world events. 

Experimental theater director Kevin Kuhlke will be collaborating with acclaimed New York–based composer Cynthia Hopkins and choreographer, CU faculty member, Onye Ozuzu to create a multidimensional theatrical experience that integrates sound/song, dance and theater Informed by Naropa’s mission of “contemplative education” based on the vision of its founder, the Tibetan Meditation Master Chogyam Trungpa it hopes to lead the way toward a new world performance culture, beyond what is customarily thought of as intercultural work.
