“…the language has a modern poeticism and cadence…”
— LA Weekly
Among the greatest of all antiwar dramas, this vital and contemporary adaptation of Euripides’ classic is brought to life by Anne Bogart's SITI Company.
In the ruins of their burning city, the royal women of Troy—still mourning the slaughter of their husbands and sons—await enslavement and exile. Among the greatest of all antiwar dramas, Trojan Women meditates on the moments of individual choice that separate death and life, despair and hope, future and past. In a contemporary adaptation by Jocelyn Clarke, characters such as Odysseus who were formerly seen but not heard appear, and live original music underscores the timeless tale. Acclaimed director Anne Bogart and her SITI Company return to ArtsEmerson after last spring’s Café Variations with this vital production of Euripides’ classic.
SITI Company’s production of Trojan Women was commissioned by the J. Paul Getty Museum and first presented at the Getty Villa in Los Angeles, California, in September, 2011.
