Presented with Élan Ensemble
December 19 at 6:30pm
A beach between worlds. Freedom and captivity. Death and life. Fate and free will. Things known and unknown. Five women wait on the shore of their homeland ravaged by war, and reflect on the events that brought them here.
Developed in 2014 by the USC MFA Acting class and director David Bridel, this adaptation of Trojan Women is raw, poignant, and at times hysterical – a carnival of memory that asks the question: Who are we, after everything we know has been stripped away from us? Drawing from improv and mythology, the ensemble created a world where movement explodes off the stage.
This contemporary version of the epic story illuminates themes such as the cost of war and its effects on women, fate, duty, power dynamics, and sexual politics between men and women. Realizing the true potential of devised theatre, Trojan Women is one not to be missed.
