"The Persians" by Aeschylus

From 15 July to 16 July 2022 · EPIDAYROS

Venue Details

Epidaurus

Epidavros Ancient Theater

Nayplioy - Epidayroy

The Persians as a tragedy of humanity, a micro-system reflecting on issues of existence and co-existence which have remained unresolved over the centuries. Boasting a stellar cast, Dimitris Karantzas’ production raises crucial questions: What constitutes “society”? And what about the equal inclusion of all citizens? What is signified by a persistent attachment to power or by the need of believing to a guide, human or divine, amid a ravaged world?

Different sections of the ancient theatre, the coilon and the orchestra, come together to “participate” in a public debate about the difficulty in conceding defeat and the awkwardness of moving on. Volunteers will gradually enter the theatre, seeking to pick up the thread of their existence
