Fall Equinox 2019 presents:

The Bacchae

An Immersive Experience of Paradox

Thursday, September 19 - Sunday, September 22, 2019

Join us for a four day festival to learn the relevance of The Bacchae on our modern world and lives. Explore the concepts of paradox, hubris, embracing chaos and order and how these themes play out in our lives through relationships, politics, and spiritual devotion.

There will be workshops during the day to understand the meaning of the play, as well as to connect and ground to elements of the deeper mysteries. Evenings will have viewing and interactive elements of Euripedes' The Bacchae, with a modern translation, though staying true to its classic roots.

I have come to this land of Thebes as the son of Zeus
Dionysus is my name. Semele
the daughter of Cadmus
gave me birth after being forced into labor by fiery lightening
