The Serpent is a piece of improvisational theatre that explores the human condition by relating events from the Book of Genesis to modern experiences and contemporary human sentiments. The play examines the human battle between self-gratification and obedience to external authority by conjuring questions of choice, freedom, fear, love, hatred, violence, guilt, and dreams of a lost paradise. Our production experimented with theatrical techniques that include ensemble characterization, physical pastiche, transformational acting, videography, repetition, and postmodern imagery.
