What can save the city? The momentum of modernisation or the grandeur of the past? Euripides or Aeschylus? Realism or the supernatural? The dilemma posed by Aristophanes in The Frogs takes centre stage in Yiannis Kakleas’ production, which examines the importance of art in times of transition such as ours. The power of art, the poorness of modern critique, theatre as an artistic and political act, comprise elements of a performance that explores new theatrical forms and the value of verse, while demonstrating the timelessness of Aristophanes’ quandary.
