CULTUREMART 2015: Idiot Kristin Marting & Robert Lyons

Funding

Idiot was developed, in part, with assistance from the Orchard Project, a program of The Exchange, www.exchangenyc.org.

About the show

Prince Myshkin squares-off with a notorious woman, a spoiled socialite, and a jealous rival in an intricate and violent quartet, as he dances the knife’s edge between torrid tragedy and mystical epiphany.

This hybrid response to The Idiot by Dostoevsky, features Marting’s gestural choreography, Lyons’ original text, and innovative video, invoking a complex and penetrating brain-scan of Prince Myshkin’s “truly beautiful soul.”
