The Pride is a gorgeously-drawn drama alternating between two very distinct time periods and sets of characters whose fate is written by their eras.  In 1958, Philip is married to Sylvia, but is secretly attracted to her colleague Oliver.  In 2008, Philip lives with his boyfriend Oliver, who continually destroys their relationship with his addiction to casual sex and turns to their friend Sylvia for guidance and support.  As the past and present worlds collide, The Pride's complex love triangle provides a provocative, humorous and insightful look at fidelity and forgiveness. 

DESIGN HIGHLIGHTS

DEMOLISHING EVERYTHING WITH AMAZING SPEED |  Show Website

Translated & Directed by Dan Hurlin


Based on four wordless and never before performed (nor translated) mini plays, originally written by Italian Futurist Fortunato Depero in 1917, are translated and captured by Dan Hurlin for their political and social undertones - ideals framed by the Futurists, one of Europe's fringe cultural movements of the early 20th century.  The four plays include Suicidi e omicidi acrobatici (Acrobatic Suicides and Homicides), Ladro automatico (Automatic Thief), Avventura elettrica (Electric Adventure) and Sicuro (Safe).  Presented in Banraku puppetry style, and unencumbered by dialogue, the plays are bizzare, almost hallucinogenic.  Packed with surreal nonsensical imagery, they are menacing and violent, but suffused with a wonderfully playful tone.
