Theater — The Iliad (Battle for Troy)

Schauspielhaus Theater Basel
Sat 22.06.
19:30 (18:30 on Sun.)

Can one laugh about war? It seems absurd. Evil jokers are waging it. After 10 years of pointless and fruitless siege of Troy, Achilles becomes as angry as a child and Odysseus has a cunning idea. Director Antú Romero Nunes makes use of Homer's ancient epic. Within a simple situation he tells his own story. A playful examination of the absurdity of great conflicts. This play will be performed in German with English surtitles, except for the première.
Tickets are CHF 30-70 for adults and CHF 10 for students.
