Guy Cassiers Guy Cassiers/Atropa

[Theatre] One of the main figures of the Flemish scene, Guy Cassiers is used to mixing drama, media and technology. In his Triptyque du pouvoir (A Triptych on Power), he explores the ins and outs of political power, echoing the situation of today’s Flanders.
Atropa – the name of a deadly plant but also that of the eldest sister of the Fates who cut the thread of life – is based on Greek tragedy : on the verge of death, Agamemnon has to face the ghosts of Cassandra, Ifigenia, Hecuba, Andromache and Clytemnestra, all women for whose despair he is responsible.
