Audition for The Serpent, by Jean Claude van Itallie


From Sivan Battat ’15:


Beginning at the Book of Genesis, Jean Claude van Itallie’s The Serpent weaves biblical narrative with contemporary experience to craft a ceremonial journey for actors and audience. It traces human existence, from the search for happiness, to first encounters with evil, to our dialogue with our own mortality. The piece takes us from the Garden of Eden and Cain and Abel all the way to Kennedy’s assassination. The key, however, is how we relate to these themes. How do we understand and grapple with violence? How do we as young people respond to and rationalize it? When do we “bite our apple” and how do we respond? It poses the question: what happens if we destroy it all?
