The Pasolini Project
“Man’s only greatness lies in his tragedy.” -Pier Paolo Pasolini
The Pasolini Project is based on Pier Paolo Pasolini’s 1969 tragedy Pylades.
Pasolini’s ecstatic poetry mobilizes the language of Greek tragedy to stage a dramatic debate on democracy and revolution. The play, Pasolini’s relentless critique of Italian culture and politics of the 1960’s, speaks directly to the turbulent socio-political climate of our times.
