Tragedy, a sequel

Created by Melanie Kloetzel as a guest artist for dance majors at the University of Calgary, Tragedy, a sequel is based on Euripides’ The Trojan Women. The work smashes together contemporary electronica with an ancient text and fulsome physicality for a heart-wrenching and sombre look at the too-often unchanging role that women have been forced to play in society. Text devised by Melanie Kloetzel from Jean-Paul Sartre’s and Edith’s Hamilton’s versions of The Trojan Women.
