As part of Centaur Theatre Company’s Brave New Works Artistic Development Initiative, The Other Theatre presents a first version of Galápagos, adapted from the acclaimed novel by Kurt Vonnegut.
Directed by Stacey Christodoulou, Galápagos is part of The Other Theatre’s Paradise Lost series, which began in 2004 with the installation Expulsion and ended with the French-language premieres of The Fever and The Designated Mourner by Wallace Shawn.
Written by Kurt Vonnegut (the acclaimed novelist of Mother Night, Welcome to the Monkey House, Breakfast of Champions, and the masterpiece Slaughterhouse Five) Galápagos recounts the ironic decline of the human species as seen through the eyes and minds of the survivors of a doomed cruise to the Galápagos Islands. A tale of evolution with more twists than Darwin could have ever imagined, Galápagos’ post-apocalyptic universe abounds in wonder, coincidence, randomness and irrationality.
