The Orpheus Project

Some might say they’ve been to hell and back after a difficult trip to Costco. For Orpheus, the phrase has a different meaning. Seattle Dance Project is resurrecting its 2008 production of The Orpheus Project, in which choreographers Wade Madsen, Eva Stone, and Olivier Wevers add a contemporary spin to the myth of love found and lost in the underworld. Orpheus meets Eurydice at a nightclub; Hades is a Fortune 500 tycoon; and Hell is an interview for a grant application. Most of the original cast is back, along with debuts by former Spectrum dancers David Alewine and Lara Seefeldt, for this 21st-century interpretation of ancient Greek drama. SANDRA KURTZ
