At present, our country finds itself in the midst of a deeply divisive political climate and highly polarized reporting in the mass media. WaxFactory’s current project-in-development explores these topical issues through the lens of drama from Ancient Greece, the birthplace of democracy. Inspired by Sophocles' Women of Trachis, THE D PROJECT concerns a decorated Army general sequestered in a foreign land, who finds himself involved in a controversy, having been accused of committing war crimes motivated by personal gain. Meanwhile, his wife faces the contentious landscape of her husband’s media coverage, navigating her way through bias and "alternative facts" in her fight to discover the truth. Following an intensive developmental residency, this workshop presentation will deploy’s WaxFactory’s trademark cross-media approach: choreographed on a set resembling a TV soundstage, a video screen suspended above the set will broadcast cinematic close-ups of live actors, edited and projected in real time.
