In “Iphigenia in Avlidis”, a society in decline sacrifices Iphigenia – and an entire generation of young people – to a futile and unjust war. “Iphigenia” is the tragedy of History. An ode to what is sacrificed each time – to give birth to the new era or to open a new cycle of destruction?
But what is the meaning of sacrifice in our troubled times? How does it intertwine with fear, expediency, vanity, selfishness, power games, the pursuit of glory, wealth and pleasure, the deadly combination of power and greed? How is it intertwined with every war, armed or economic, with every crime?
What do we sacrifice and on which altars?
In “Iphigenia en Avlidis”, Euripides stirs up the mythological material, leaving for a moment open the possibility that things could develop differently. After twenty years of the Peloponnesian War, Euripides seems to be asking himself: “is a paradigm shift possible”?
Two and a half thousand years later, and while we are experiencing the first symptoms of a dystopian future, which we have lost, we still wonder: “is a paradigm shift possible”?
The question is unanswerable. Maybe someday civilization will shed its inherent, deadly discomfort. Perhaps one day progress will cease to ally itself with barbarism. Maybe someday…
Until then, all we can do is tell the same story again and again, in all tones and in all ways, through the filter of our own time… Themis Moumoulidis
