Fifty Days at Iliam

Normally, around this time of year, we are knee-deep in Fringe coverage. But, we thought a break was in order. We have worked tirelessly over that last six seasons and we thought, we deserved a break. So, we took the summer to relax and we entertained the occasional interview request. Then, Hannah Van Sciver reached out and we snapped back into the thick of it to bring you this interview for the FRINGE ARTS production of FIFTY DAYS at ILIAM. Stay Tuned!

Fifty-Days-at-Iliam_Hannah-Van-Sciver-1024x1024

Fifty Days at Iliam is a bold new piece exploring the Trojan War as told through the paintings of Cy Twombly. Featuring a dynamic ensemble led by Hannah Van Sciver and direction by William Steinberger, it is an unflinching look at the role of the artist in the final days of a decade-long slaughter.

$12 / 70 minutes

Fifty Days at Iliam features a diverse ensemble of like-minded, professional theatre makers from New York, Philadelphia and beyond. We are actors, directors, playwrights, musicians, vocalists, dancers, choreographers and martial artists. Led by Hannah Van Sciver, Directed by William Steinberger.

Mercury Fur

Maybe we should start a special podcast series that highlights the work of one Josh Hitchens. The jack of many theatrical trades shares his artistic vision with Melissa Amilani for this Brainspunk production, the most controversial play of the last 20 years! Stay Tuned!

MercuryFur

The most controversial play of the last 20 years, Mercury Fur first opened in London to a mix of anger and praise. Receiving its Philadelphia premiere, the play is set in a post-apocalyptic version of London’s East End where terror, gangs, violence, and drugs in the form of butterflies rule. Two brothers deal the butterflies and engage in trade with objects stolen from places like the British Museum, looted by butterfly addicted customers. The real source of income is holding parties for wealthy clients in which their wildest horrific fantasies come to life, asking us all the question-how far we are willing to go to save the people we love? Not for the weak of heart.

 WARNING: GRAPHIC VIOLENCE & ADULT SITUATIONS. CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 18 NOT ADMITTED WITHOUT PARENT OR GUARDIAN.
