Dante’s Inferno: Casting Call


dantes-infernoDante’s Inferno will be a professionally developed aerial theater production based on the poem “Dante’s Inferno” by Dante Alighieri. It will be a non-verbal performance, in the style of nouveau cirque, with characters and screenplay based on the classical poem.

This dark tale will probe the depths of human sin, revealing that hell is not only for condemned souls. It will explore the theory that hell is created in our own minds when we lose our truth. The torments of hell are ravaged upon our own minds, God and Satan being one and the same within us. Ultimately it is a message of hope; a plea to overcome our demons through reason, faith, and love.
