Iphigenia in Aulis

Cyprus : Iphigenia in Aulis

Fantastico Theatro presents Euripides’ tragedy Iphigenia in Aulis in a new translation and adaptation.

Aulis: a liminal place, a non-place, a place where time has stopped, where the waiting seems endless, where memory is constructed again and again, until memory and myth become inseparable.

The fleet is trapped in a harbour. There are no favourable winds. Time passes. The army forgets why they are there. The ritual slaughter of an innocent girl is decreed. The leaders must choose: the war will take place only if they kill the girl. Otherwise, nothing will happen.

The heroes of the Trojan war are presented as self-serving politicians. Euripides, in his bold version of the Iphigenia myth, creates an anti-war play and dares to undermine nationalistic narratives.

The performance is inspired by the location.

The place: Nicosia, near the buffer zone of the divided city.

For only five performances: 23, 25, 26, 27, 28 July, at 9 pm.
