About this show

La MaMa E.T.C. in association with the Polish Cultural Institute in New York, presents Poland's acclaimed Staniewski Center for Theatre Practices Gardzienice with the world premiere of its newest production, Iphigenia at Aulis -- directed and adapted from the Euripides classic by the renowned theatre artist Wlodzimierz Staniewski. Iphigenia at Aulis -- featuring original music by Zygmunt Konieczny, recognized as one of the most outstanding film and theatre Polish composers -- is a visual spectacle that examines how lives are affected by sacrifices made in the name of religion, politics and love. The production is performed in English, Polish and Ancient Greek, with scenes built on shadow and light, movement, gesture and music to tell Euripides' classic story of betrayal, deception, and sacrifice in a time of war.
