Or Forever Hold Your Peace – Theatre at La Boite

Adapted from Euripides’ play and brought to life by a cast of 20 performers, Iphigenia 2.0 is a compelling conversation about the nature of democracy, leadership and the power of the collective voice.

Faced with their impending deployment to the Trojan War, a troop of gung-ho soldiers with nothing to lose demand from their leader something unspeakable. Using a sham wedding to the handsome warrior Achilles as bait, Agamemnon lures his daughter to Aulis and sets in motion a chain of events that brings an empire to ruin.

Drawing parallels between Greek tragedy, modern warfare and the state of the local political landscape, Or Forever Hold Your Peace is as physically explosive and athletic as it is ephemeral.

“A petrifying array of love and violence that will keep you chained to your seat.” XS Entertainment
