Akshara Theatre Presents: I'm Your Venus

Adaptation, Contemporary, Drama | english

I'm Your Venus is adapted from David Ives' witty dramatisation of the (in)famous erotic classic Venus in Fur, written by Leopold Von Sacher Masoch. A desperate actress and a skeptical playwright turn a stormy, late-evening stage audition into a play within a play within a play; a cat and mouse game of sexual power, with some unexpected divine intervention. The play is set in two times and geographical zones; contemporary New York and 18th century Germany. It explores the complexity and layers of a different kind of love, of desire and relationship. Its witty dialogues and underlying philosophy make it especially relevant in today's times. The play was performed on Broadway and later made into a film by Roman Polanski.
