The Marsyas Hour. The artist develops and performs a new version of his latest project
Benjamin Seror's improvised stories are inspired by phantoms of literature, art history and everyday adventures. Over three Tuesday evenings in the Redcat Lounge, he develops and performs a new version of his latest project, The Marsyas Hour, an impromptu script for a TV pilot that recounts everyday life on Mount Olympus through the eyes of the young satyr Marsyas. Apollo defeated Marsyas in a flute contest, and had him tied to a tree to be frayed alive - but Marsyas survived the punishment and committed his life to defeating the gods.
