"If evil is in this wind, let it blow over." So reads Ted Hughes' translation of the Oresteia. The first part of the trilogy by Greek tragedy poet Aischylos focuses on the story of King Agamemnon and his wife Klytaimnḗstra.
The monarch decides to sacrifice their daughter Iphigenia in exchange for favourable winds to take his ships to Troy. When Agamemnon finally wins the Trojan War, he returns home, where a confrontation with Klytaimnḗstra awaits him.
The cast includes a group of Belgian and Greek actors and a Filipino and Norwegian performer. A polyphonic ensemble, it embodies different perspectives and exposes the dynamics between dancers and actors. Of power hunger and violence, of the indifference with which we endure brutality. A questioning of contemporary (gender) identities and truths.
