Genre: Classical, Drama
designed and directed by Theodora Skipitares

adapted from Euripides by Ms. Skipitares, features five-foot Bunraku puppets strapped to the front of actors' bodies at the head, the chest, the waist, and the knees. Each veiled actor speaks his lines from behind the puppet, much as an actor might have spoken his lines from behind a large Greek mask in ancient Greek theatre. IPHIGENIA is a story of betrayal and deception in the name of war. The puppets are an eerie construction of facade and public display, while their operators are a shadow of primal, often raw emotions and personal desires.
