CRACKING ZEUS

A THEATRICAL FILM

APRIL 01-MAY 31

BY CHRISTOPHER HAMPTON

DIRECTED BY ELIZABETH DINKOVA

DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY AND EDITOR BARRETT DOYLE

"Cracking Zeus" is a present-day myth about religion, dependency, and redemption. Drug addiction is a scourge that affects nearly the entire world, but has dramatically impacted minority communities in urban areas. This tragicomedy draws a parallel between the rigid structure of the Grecian pantheon and modern views on social hierarchies that valorize power and demonize addiction.

What separates humans from other animals? The ability to envision new worlds and bring them into being. Before the End explores the primordial drive to strive for utopia even as the world around us is falling apart. In this interactive film-theatre experience, audience members will journey through the brightest and darkest corners of human nature, guided by fantasies of a perfect world. This immersion into the life cycles of utopian experiments probes the boundary between culture and cult, individual and community, and creation and destruction.
