Bard Theater and Performance Program Presents

These Young Men and Women

Written, choreographed, and directed by Jack Ferver

These Young Men and Women is an interdisciplinary and multimedia work created by Jack Ferver and performed by Bard students. Three tragedies by Euripides are used for the source material: Medea, Elektra, and The Trojan Women. The timeless human themes from these plays are inhabited through Ferver’s often humorous and vicious original text and choreography. The work acts out modern day tragedies of American youth as it juxtaposes forms from the classical to the contemporary, the epic to the quotidian, and the mythic to the personal. For mature audiences only.
