Dust Of Babylon
Dust Of Babylon
Your assignment: analyze and debate subatomic particles, ancient civilizations, the discovery of fire, the struggle between religion and science, and the unknown darkness lurking beyond the very limits of reality. One minor detail: You have only 60 minutes, which you must also spend running, screaming, doing pushups, crying, and literally bouncing off the walls. Got it? then youre ready for Soma theater ensembles production of Sierra eckerts Dust of Babylon, a fascinating and alarming meditation on human efforts to bend the universe to our will and the terrifying consequences of our hubris. Dust of Babylon derives its plot from the wonder, fear, and mystery surrounding the Large Hadron Collider, a real multi-billion dollar research installation, wherein scientists intend to recreate the big bang on a small scale and study the primal forces at work. Nobody is completely, 100% sure what will happen once it is switched on; some fear a black hole or cataclysmic explosion will occur. From this uncertainty arises the central discussion and conflict between Newt, a skeptical journalist and elektra, a brilliant scientist working on the Collider. as the play begins, the newsman arrives to interview the intense researcher about the purpose and implications of the project. However, the calm scene quickly goes off the rails when Newts poorly hidden fears of the unknown bubble to the surface. Things really get weird when Prometheus, god of fire, enters the scene with a lesson for those mortals that would themselves attempt to play gods. What begins as a pleasant, rather routine interview quickly spirals into a nightmarish hurricane of cosmic anomalies, desperate prayers, tragic histories, and doomsday prophecies.
