In the tragedy Iphigenia in Aulis, the main heroine dies for the sake of a futile, destructive imperialist war. A decadent society sacrifices Iphigenia, who embodies an entire generation of young people. In the wake of 20 years of Peloponnesian War, Euripides seemingly wonders: is a paradigm shift feasible? 2,500 years later, as we begin to perceive the first signs of a dystopian future, we also keep wondering: can things ever change? Themis Moumoulidis presents a performance reflecting on the past, present, and future, drawing on Panagiota Pantazis’ new modern Greek translation of the play. The production is pervaded by a complete musical work by composer Stavros Gasparatos, who is inspired by the form of Iphigenia, creating a parallel narrative in dialogue with the direction.
