Ten Thousand Things' Production of Iphigenia of Aulis
Everwood Farmstead Foundation concludes its 10th season of the Artist Series with Ten Thousand Things' Production of Iphigenia of Aulis on Sunday, September 11th!
Ten Thousand Things invigorates ancient tales, classic stories, and contemporary plays through vital, open interactions between actors and audiences. And they bring their award-winning, high-quality professional theater to people with little access to the arts. The company performs for free at homeless shelters, correctional facilities, low-income senior centers, reservations, after-school programs, and women's shelters - any place where they can reach people who do not have easy access to the arts. TTT doesn't use a stage; rather, they perform on the floor inside a circle of chairs, with the lights on so everyone can see each other, with minimal sets and live music. The result is a performance that engages the audience's imagination.They also perform for paying audiences, typically in Minneapolis.
Iphigenia at Aulis by Euripides was first presented in 405 BC in Athens Greece. To this day it is still one of the most moving plays ever written. At the center of the story are the fate of a girl at the brink of war, the duty to country versus the duty to family, and the sacrifices that many make in order to save others. In a parallel yet contemporary bow to the origins of Greek theater, our production is rooted in ritual, movement and song. Directed by Marcela Lorca, with music direction from JD Steele and a stellar company of Ten Thousand Things actors, including Regina Marie Williams and Steve Epp. Weather permitting, this production will be held outdoors in Everwood's field (alternative location is the barn).
