A few words about Euripides and the
work: Euripides the greatest tragic poet (Aristotle described Euripides as the “most tragic of all”) was born in Salamina in 484 or 480 and grew up in the one-way experience of the thriving Athenian Republic.
A student of Anaxagoras, he entered the circle of Pericles where politics, philosophy and new ideas were problems that were treated with passion in everyday miracles of creation and free reflection.
He wrote 90 works and 18 or 19 of them survive. He died in Pella, Macedonia in 406 BC.
The work of “TROADES” is the most popular of his surviving tragedies. It is a purely anti-war work, timeless, which captures as much as any text of the ancient Greek secretariat the arrogance of power and its disastrous consequences.
Troy’s on fire. Her culture is being destroyed. The future of a country is buried. Women captive to their fate and the decisions of the gods. A formidable allegory of then with today, a quick passage into the history of all kinds of war and its consequences. Women with suitcases in their hands are driven to immigration, to puzing… An intimate and contemporary image. Another escape from a different war… take the path of foreignness, slaves and loot into the hands of the victors.
History repeats itself…
