“Let neither me nor my children be overcome by that fear (…); who will get hold of my beautiful plaits, draw me crying, like a dying plant pull me out?’ The first journey of the girls of Chalkida towards the ships and tents of the armed Achaias, and ‘the crowded bodies of horses’, waiting for the wind to attack Troy for months. It is like a story
of Ifigenia’s sacrifice waiting for centuries to be recalled in a narrative.

The performance of the 2nd course students of the Academy of Theatre Practices is based on a method of working on gesture in ancient Greek tragedy, introduced by Włodzimierz Staniewski.
