WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Never as Happy (in a world of blue) is an edgy adaptation of the Oresteia. Every moment is an echo of another and the gods wait and watch as the house of Atreus bleeds anew. Javierantonio González adapts and directs. The Oresteia can be read as a play about purification. Exiled by his mother, made a murderer by his sister and hunted by the furies, Orestes is released and free of guilt by the end of his trial. But is he really? Never as Happy (in a world of blue) examines a variety of ideas: Are we able to recover from our pasts and begin lives full of joy? How much are we willing to sacrifice for happiness? Must our lives be defined by our family history, or may we act independently of our family traditions? The people in this world of blue suffer the fallout of a redundant war, and experience shame and stupidity instead of honor and glory. The text is compiled and adapted from Aeschylus's Oresteia, Sophocles's Electra and Euripides's Orestes, Iphigenia at Tauris and Iphegenia at Aulis.
