Iphigenia: Fragments from an Excavation

Iphigenia:  A girl, a myth, a sacrifice to the Gods of War? Or the first refugee, according to the ancients, a fate worse than death? In her TEDx talk, Iphigenia’s mother Clytemnestra addresses these questions and more. Iphigenia: Fragments from an Excavation is a film/theatre/music performance in progress, adapted from Euripdes’ Iphigenia plays. It is a response to the refugee crisis as seen through the lens of the Iphigenia myth and part of a multi-year collaboration between filmmaker Irina Patkanian and writer Lisa Schlesinger. This staged reading is directed by Nina Morrison.
