Original title: Ἰλιάς
First production of the adaption

Director

Jernej Lorenci

Opening night

24 January 2015
Gallus Hall

Duration:

190 minutes inc. interval

The famous epic story of Homer, written between the 8th and 7th centuries BC, is one of the oldest artworks of Western literature. This canonical text is embedded in the foundations of European and global cultural awareness. The tales from Greek mythology, which are an integral part of this epic story, still speak out to the modern man, or better yet, still portray us. Although this ancient epic story about the Trojan War is well known and a part of the school curricula, and through film and other adaptations also a part of popular culture, it rarely finds its way to the stage. Director Jernej Lorenci tackled the demanding adaptation of the epic story for the theatre. He is one of the most interesting theatre artists in Slovenia at the moment as evident from the number of resounding performances and numerous awards received.
