Zelda is performing in Euripides' "The Bacchae" at La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club. She will be playing one of the Bacchic Women.
In “The Bacchae,” the celebrated, gender-bending and mercurial party god Dionysus cavorts with his ecstatic followers, the girl-group known as The Bacchae, only to be challenged by the villainous secularist Pentheus. Overflowing with worship of all kinds (drunken goat dances anyone?) some will recognize the earliest glimmers of liberation theology… others may smell the first whiff of religious fundamentalism, and the end of the party. What, the party’s over????
