An ancient tragedy, based on the story of Prometheus, who is being punished not only for stealing fire, but also for thwarting Zeus’s plan to obliterate the human race. As his punishment is to be chained to a mountain in the Caucasus, the play is composed almost entirely of speeches. A chorus of Oceanids appear and attempt to comfort Prometheus by conversing with him.
This was a four-month rehearsals and three-month tour in the ancient theatres of Greece, including the Ancient Theatre od Epidaurus, the Odeon of Herod Atticus, the Ancient Theatre of Messini and the Ancient Theatre of Dodoni.
A co-production of the Municipal Regional Theatre of Ioannina and the Athens and Epidaurus Festival, 2015.
