The Pasolini Project

The Pasolini Project is a new translation of Pier Paolo Pasolini’s 1968 tragedy PYLADE, a modern continuation of the Oresteia story and a re-imagining of Greek tragedy, complete with a nine-actor Chorus. It examines the vital link between tragedy and politics, the consequences of drastic social change and the inescapable grip of the Past on the Present.

The Pasolini Project is a creation of Adam Paolozza and Coleen MacPhereson. PYLADE features Dan Watson, Ravi Jain, Fabio Fabbri, Rebecca Singh, Miranda Calderon, Lisa Marie Diliberto, Kimwun Perehinec, Dean Gilmour and Michele Smith. PYLADE was developed with the assistance of VideoCab and presented as part of Candian Stage’s Festival of Ideas and Creation in May 2010.
