Bellona, Destroyer of Cities

MIT Associate Professor of Theater Jay Scheib, recipient of a 2011 fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation and named one of 25 artists who will shape the next 25 years of theater, returns to The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston (ICA) stage with a new work, Bellona, Destroyer of Cities, based on Samuel Delany’s epic novel, Dhalgren.

A once illustrious city, Bellona has been decimated by a mysterious event. Why do its buildings repeatedly burst into flames and why do the city streets appear to rearrange themselves?

The performances will take place on May 13 and 14 at 7:30 p.m. and May 15 at 2 p.m. at the ICA, 100 Northern Avenue, Boston.

Tickets are available through the ICA website.
