Columbia Stages is proud to present THE CORSAIR, inspired by "The Corsair" by Lord Byron and conceived and directed by Katie Naka (MFA Directing Candidate, 2013). THE CORSAIR will run February 13-16, 2013 at 3LD as part of the Columbia Stages season, comprised of MFA thesis plays directed by graduating Columbia University School of the Arts students.
A journey into the hearts of both the classic and the modern anti-hero, THE CORSAIR is a hybrid-theatre-mash-up fantasy that trips through all sides of being a badass. Through movement, video, music, swords, sexiness, and good old-fashioned storytelling, Katie Naka and crew take you on an adventure through dark swirling waters and the torture-born freedom of having nothing left to lose; they are honored, inspired, and excited to be working with this amazing text by Lord Byron (the proto rock star). THE CORSAIR promises to be worthy of its Columbia pedigree, while at the same time being just as "mad, bad, and dangerous to know" as the man himself.
