Tabula Rasa: Oedipus Rex

New York Live Arts / New York / Stage

The story is 2,650 years old, yet it never gets old—Oedipus Rex by Sophocles. Murder, incest, suicide, generational fate. Tabula Rasa Dance Theater takes on the tragedy but sets it in 2020 during the Covid pandemic. Oedipus is the proprietor of a nightclub. The production has an original electronic score and employs lasers and A.I. The choreographer is Felipe Escalante, the company’s founder and artistic director. —L.J.
