RAIN/ OF TERROR (2009)

RAIN/ of terror
Adapted from Georg Büchner’s Danton’s Death by Julie Rada

During the chaos of the Revolution, a man in isolation has left the political scene to languish in sensual delights. Another man at the zenith of power clings to virtue and a hunger for conformity…the citizens are easily roused and swayed…a culture of fear infects the city with the constant threat of execution. Through the lens of LIDA’s unique aesthetic and devised through collaborative process, Georg Büchner’s classic Danton’s Death, gets a new life in this story of the inevitable triumph of humanity and its insatiable lust for life, against the backdrop of sex, violence, corruption, and bloodshed.

“It’s theater of chaos. It’s smoldering, it feels a little dangerous and it’s completely unlike any other theatrical experience you’ll get in this town.” – John Moore, The Denver Post
