Iphigenia Point Blank: The Story of the First Refugee is an immersive theatre experience fusing together documentary film, live music, theatre and dance. This work is a culmination of a multiyear collaboration between award-winning artists from Syria, Lebanon, Greece, France, Russia, Iran, Iraq and the USA. Iphigenia is excavated from Euripides’ plays and the ancient Greek laments, emerging as a refugee of all wars, from the Trojan War to the wars of today. Iphigenia—the first refugee depicted in Western drama—confronts the current refugee crisis and demands to change the ending of her own story.
Iphigenia Point Blank is a requiem for those who drowned, a memorial for those left behind, a hymn to life for those who survive and a call for justice for all people displaced and lost to war.
