The Electra Project
A devised and created work by Mihai Maniutiu, the Electra Project explored themes of destiny and fate and whether one could stop the hand of fate from causing pain and death. For Electra, Orestes, Pylades, Old Man and the chorus, I took initial inspiration from high fashion on the runways and mixed it with research of homelessness in urban cities. As for the three characters in all white, they represent the cruel, viciousness of high soceity and the greed that they seemlingly always succumb to. Produced by University of California, Irvine.
