Showdown on the battlefield in front of Troy
Fate and passion drive the Amazon queen Penthesilea and the Greek army commander Achilles towards each other. But the law dictates: only a victorious Amazon has a right to erotic conquest. Love and bloodlust are soon inseparable. Eva Trobisch stages the grandiosely composed struggle of two lovers against themselves and against each other. As representatives of an outdated system, they break with the social order that leaves no room for alternative ways of life. After Trobisch's award-winning film 'Alles ist gut' with ensemble member Aenne Schwarz in the leading role, 'Penthesilea' is now her first theater production.
