Characters that we know very well - Achilles, conqueror of many cities; Hector, who overshadowed everyone in battle; the supreme leader Agamemnon; the gallant Paris; Odysseus of many a wise ruse. And her - supposedly the most beautiful - Helen. They are fighting a perenial fight, one that will never end. Not here, not now, not in this Troy, never.
Victor Davydiuk's choreography, created for Gabriel Kaczmarek's new musical composition, is an attempt at expressing through dance the cruelty of battle, as well as the pain and despair that lingers after those who died refuse to leave. The authors, by telling one of the most popular stories about the long-standing conflict, tackle issues that are all too prevalent in our reality. What is the price of battle? Who is fighting it and what for? Which side will be on tommorow? Do we still have chance for a better world?
