Ecstatic dance and music fuel political uprising in Soyinka’s adaptation of Euripides’ classic play about a god and the despot who attempts to control him. When autocratic King Pentheus of Thebes imprisons Dionysus, the god of wine, fertility, and theater, he unleshes a frenzied revolt among Dionysus’ female followers, the Bacchantes. Gender, sexuality, and identity become transgressive, visceral expressions of protest among Dionysus and the women, linking a mythical past to the music and art that powers political change today.
