“I was a princess.
Of the Atreus house.
No more.
Should be dead, technically,
But hey…

Following their Dora-Nominated hit Black Boys, Saga Collectif returns with Ho Ka Kei’s vital new adaptation of the rarely told story of “Iphigenia On Taurian Land” by Euripides.

Saved from death by the goddess Artemis, Iphigenia is now a priestess on Taurian land – slaughtering any foreigners that arrive – assisted by a disgruntled Chorus. Two strangers, pursued by the Furies, stumble upon her temple, claiming to be her long lost brother Orestes and his gawgeous lover Pylades. Iphigenia is forced to make an impossible choice: flee with the newcomers or stay true to her sacred mission.

Containing Aristotle’s favourite recognition scene, this play asks: When violence is your family inheritance, how do you break the cycle?

But wait.
I think the Furies might have something to say about all this…
