Ted Hughes' "Tales From Ovid" (Paramount Center)

Boston’s own Whistler in the Dark company reaches for new heights in revisiting their bold staging that combines their signature pared-down aesthetic with dizzying aerial feats. An explosive combination of movement and poetry, Tales from Ovid cradles the myths that have been the basis for countless contemporary stories – stories of transformation, of transcendent passion, of gods and mortals locked in combat until that entanglement combusts into a new state of being. Using Ted Hughes’ muscular and robust translation, which was awarded the Whitbread Prize in 1997, these myths are explored and exploded outward in this vibrant new adaptation.
