The Elektra Project

A new adaptation by Haymaker with musical collaborator Jenavieve Varga

Is this a Tupperware party? Is that girl singing opera in the kitchen? There’s blood everywhere. Haymaker, a Durham performance company, and violinist/composer Jenavieve Varga of Chapel Hill band Lost in the Trees team up to create a new adaptation of the Elektra story, adapted from multiple sources. The end result is a story of an American family, bad dreams, retribution and matricide.
