WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Aeschylus authored the oldest extant drama. The Oresteia, the only surviving trilogy of Ancient Greek tragedy, is an inexorable exploration of human nature. It exists at a threshold between old and new worlds. In this production of few words, Aeschylus' trilogy becomes the catalyst for a future tragic form. A distinctive theatrical language of gesture, image, and sound emerges.
