Aeschylus once wrote that "in war, truth is the first casualty." In his post-Trojan War drama Agamemnon, the same could be said of love. Combined with the first half of The Libation Bearers, nimbus' Agamemnon chronicles the triumphant return home of King Agamemnon after the fall of Troy and how, through deceit, subterfuge and manipulation, murder and revenge ensue.
This is the first part of a two-part original adaptation of the Oresteia triology, directed by nimbus co-Artistic Director Liz Neerland. These classic plays have been re-imagined as a daring new work that seeks to trace the reverberations of brutality throughout world history and to explore how humans and violence are inextricably and, seemingly, exponentially linked.
