Dead Can Dance

Civic Theatre
Originating out of Melbourne, Dead Can Dance embodies the traditions of Europew in their music. Their upcoming album “Dionysus” took inspiration from Dionysian religious practices for their spring and harvest festivals. The presence of the religion was suppressed during the ideological control of Christianity and Islam since the Roman Empire, and so the influence that Dionysus still had on these festivals would continue to manifest itself albeit in a more censored form. Dead Can Dance’s latest album brings to the fore the rites and rituals that today continue to be informed by the Greek god, with the album’s seven movements representing different facets of the Dionysus myth and his cult. Starting $35. sandiegotheatres.org
