Ambitious, Romantic, Melancholic

See it if You enjoy fully immersive shows and would like to see one that combines dance, song, live music, spoken word and audience participation.

Don't see it if You don’t feel comfortable navigating dark staircases of a rundown church.

Clever, Great staging, Romantic, Enchanting, Ambitious

See it if you want to see a new retelling of the classic Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice

Don't see it if you don't like moving around to see the show. You have to climb many stairs during the performance

Theatre is Easy
May 14th, 2018

"The choreography is undoubtedly the strongest element of this production and the most successful scenes of 'Beloved/Departed' are dance-based...Yet while certainly a memorable experience, 'Beloved/Departed' lacks cohesiveness due to some imbalances. Much of the dialogue is naively direct and self-explanatory...'Beloved/Departed' is an ambitious project occupying a vast, labyrinth-like space. The match between the show and venue is uncanny."

“Ten energetic performers and a string quartet bring to life a bevy of Greek gods and goddesses...Students of immersive theatre will delight in observing the gods interact: hopeful glances, a steely eyed stare, a quiet scoff. A careful eye will note just how much is being communicated about each god-to-god relationship during these quiet moments...’Beloved/Departed’ is what happens when love is not enough...An exploration of what it means...to be human.”

“A different take on the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, what really makes it different is a quality of rough-edged simplicity...But simple doesn’t mean mindless. The text and choreography, coupled with the music and lyrics, the sets and lighting, and the costume design are appropriate for a piece that emphatically doesn’t wear its underlying intelligence on its sleeve...Each member of the cast left a distinct impression.”
