The Burning of the Ancient Library of Alexandria brought down the house at CounterPULSE this past weekend. The cast made use of many different forms of media and brought a fascinating evocation of ancient philosophy to life with their enthusiasm and commitment on the stage.

    I was very interested in Hypatia’s story & Alexandria from much research myself so I wanted to see what your troupe came up with. And while it was a wonderful way to reap the fruits of others’ researches, I felt the play was weighed down by too much detail and not enough development of character and relationship with us, the audience. For instance, there was nothing in the play nor the actress to give an opening as to why and/or what it was about her or her teaching that inspired such devotion & love. She was a nice lady who believed in Isis & those traditions like any traditionally minded person in the beliefs they were raised with. I particularly appreciated the music/choral research:)
