    At Madame Pari’s brothel, sex is nothing more than a transaction. But each of the girls who offers her services there also has her own private world. Harsh or utopian, essential or cynical, this world is the only thing that is true in their everyday lives. They need to survive, even when it costs them.

  • Cyclops

    by Euripides

    Tour

    SUMMER TOUR

    Euripides’ Cyclops is the only complete satiric drama still surviving. It was probably written between 410 and 415 BC but we do not know which tetralogy it belonged to. The play’s plot draws on book nine of Homer’s Odyssey and enacts Odysseus’s well-known encounter with Polyphemus from a different perspective, through Euripides’ addition of the Satyrs.

    The central theme of Cyclops is the clash of primitive instinct, represented by Polyphemus, with civilisation, in the form of Odysseus. The presence of the Satyrs creates a Dionysian atmosphere that emphasises the characters’ playful side.

    Tour

    SUMMER TOUR

    Women of Trachis, one of Sophocles’ most neglected plays, was probably staged between 457 and 430 BC. The central theme of the play, as reflected in its two-part structure, is the finite nature of human awareness: the incapability of grasping the whole, and being able to see only one side of something. Ignorance prevents people from having full control of their choices, so that they become aware of their fate only once it is too late...
