Gabriel Cazes in collaboration with director Thorleifur Örn Arnarsson just premiered The Orestie in Volksbhune Berlin.
They are currently working on The Wild Duck by Ibsen in Thalia Theater Hamburg and will premiere on December 3th
The Oresteia by Aeschylus consists of Agamemnon, The Libation Bearers and The Eumenides
It’s the oldest trilogy of tragedies that’s survived to the present day, and was created shortly after the political upheaval in Athens that led to the first democratic state in the history of the world.
A cycle of murder and revenge finally leads to a trial with a jury of Athenian citizens and ends with an acquittal through divine intervention.
With a scrutinising perspective on our society, scenarios of violence and power negotiate and call into question the power of the state and every individual in a fundamental clash of viewpoints and values.
