Hercules: In Search of a Hero

directed by Ioanna Katsarou

 

Hercules: In Search of a Hero is a new theater piece combining excepts from Euripides’ plays Alcestis and Hercules, along with original material, to explore the meaning of heroism in our time. Hercules is a man of violence, usually heroic by killing. Alcestis, on the other hand, is a woman who stands out for an act of self-sacrifice: she is heroic by dying. Placing the action in a modern setting, Hercules: In Search of a Hero challenges the conventional, masculine notion of heroism and contemplates a feminine alternative.
