About this show

A new multimedia theater production by Theodora Skipitares, based on Euripides' Helen, in which a phantom likeness of Helen goes to the Trojan War and the real Helen goes to Egypt for 17 years. The women in Euripides' play were real in a new way for Greek drama, created out of a new kind of sympathy. Skipitares is well-known for her mastery of large-scale puppets as well as miniatures; this production employs several styles of shadow puppetry in the style of the line drawings of ancient Greek pottery, Bunraku puppetry and others.
