Callimachus is obsessed with Drusiana and attempts to seduce her. Drusiana successfully prays for death in order to escape Callimachus’s advances. Still madly in love, Callimachus goes to her tomb where he too meets his death, until Saint John resurrects them both for a second chance to make amends.
This dark yet comedic play will be presented as an interactive live performance/video experience. We begin at the Newmarket Library where audience members retrieve an iPad. With the help of a Shadowpath guide, they’ll pick up the action with live actors along Main Street until they end at a secret location.
A unique combination of medieval and digital creativity told through live performance/pre-recorded theatre, providing participants an opportunity to experience a very classical work in a thoroughly modern way.
Callimachus was written in the 10th century by the first, known female playwright Roswitha.
