War, it attracts the best and worst of our kind. Euripides tragedy takes a look at the aftermath, the loss, the atrocities, and the despair that the survivors must suffer through. Shakespeare Frankfurt is proud to present the European premiere of Alan Shapiro’s poetic translation.
Since the first human tribes fought over a mastodon carcass and access to water, we as a species have gone to war. Unfortunately, times haven’t changed. During the “Age of Heroes” the Greeks dealt with it nearly as often as we do today. Alan Shapiro’s poetic translation brings the elegant and rhythmic quality of Euripides work to vibrant life, while also creating a very modern sensibility to the text. Inspired by the religious elements of traditional Greek theatre, this tale drives forward to the obvious and eventual end of a civilization.
Director – PJ Escobio
Assistant Director – Varvara Pomoni
