by SERGIO BLANCO after EURIPIDES
with DESPINA SARAFIDOU
Sergio Blanco’s Trojan princess is a transgender migrant who speaks in a broken English. She presents her tragic odyssey in shiny red boots. CASSANDRA philosophizes on our contemporary stories, power, sex, wars, martyrs, barbaric crimes and luxurious Helenas. On winners and losers, humor and sarcasm.
Euripides and Bugs Bunny, Abba, Manchester United and Scarlett O’Hara. The distances between myth and reality, the actor and audience, space and language, fall apart before our eyes. CASSANDRA is us.
The Greek theater and film actress Despina Sarafidou has also played Medea in one of her other shows.
