Trojan Women: A Contemporary Take on a Classic
In perhaps one of the first recorded pieces of theater in the Western canon that passes the Bechdel test, Euripides' Trojan Women tells a story of women who are stronger than gods. Trojan Women offers an unapologetic and powerful look at the act of community-building during times of grief, the gendered violence of war and the messy aftermath of both real and mythic Greek conquests. Written circa 415 BCE and set immediately after the Trojan War, the play follows, in real time, the lives of nine remaining Trojan women (and two Greek men) as their city is captured. Project Nongenue digs up and breathes life into this historical text through movement, modern and classical language and contemporary themes. Watch this classic get reworked at L.A.'s Lounge Theatre.
