Valerio Binasco stages two plays by Euripides, embarking on an ideal journey to explore the pain of sons, the bleak loneliness of families and the weighty burden of responsibility that galvanises the theatre and its history. Iphigenia and Orestes are two victims, the former passive and submissive, the latter fated to committing a crime and therefore condemned to remorse. However, when destiny brings brother and sister together, they will succeed in breaking free from the weight of the past, from the sins of their lineage. They are both gentle spirits but they’re determined to escape a future of suffering.
