The Bacchae

By Euripedes
Translated by Emma Pauly

Here I am. Dionysus, son of Zeus, in the land of Thebes, at your service. Kadmos’ daughter Semele gave birth to me here in a scorch of lightning. Down from divinity, I have taken this mortal form, here where the Dirke and Ismenus meet.

Lamp Lady

By Marta Aran
Translated by Elena Igartuburu

MAURICI: Very interesting. Ok then, listen. I don’t have a title for it yet, but I’ll probably call it “Lamp Lady.”
MAURICI: Because that’s exactly what it’ll be. A woman posing as a lamp.
