Based on the pic poem by Homer,

Adapted and Directed by Annie Loui

This dramatic movement piece is constructed in the style of CounterBalance Theatre, in which actors play multiple characters, as well as animals and architecture. Taking place ten years into the Trojan War, this is a story about reputaiton and honor, and how they create the ultimate THEM and US: a world in which even the immortals come down to earth to take sides. 

After the 8 p.m. showing on October 15th, UCI Professors of Classics Zina Giannopoulou and Andrew Zissos will discuss the performance and related work.
