Undermain Theatre and the Danielle Georgiou Dance group are proud to present Stronger Than Arms, a new adaptation of Aeschylus’s Seven Against Thebes done in the inimitable style of DGDG.
Writer/director/choreographer Danielle Georgiou and writer Justin Locklear will dive into the spiritual and political burdens placed on the chorus of Theban citizens. As the generational conflicts of territory and birthright ravage the cities around them, the chorus is divided, revealing their individual conflicts and motivations.
The title stems from the line, “Fear is stronger than arms,” while the story points to the power of humanity’s worst enemy, unconquerable fear, and reveals that there could be something stronger—the willingness to change.
Told through poetic verse, dance, and multi-media, Stronger Than Arms examines the universal themes of myth, status, aggression, and fate. Expect the unexpected!
