Iphigenia Point Blank: The Story of the First Refugee
Iphigenia Point Blank: The Story of the First Refugee is a public ritual that invites the audience to participate in Iphigenia’s wedding funeral. According to Syrian tradition, when a young woman dies before she weds, her wedding is celebrated during the funeral.
Throughout the performance, a documentary film is projected without a soundtrack. The play is live “scoring” the film.
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.
