Undermain Theatre presents Stronger Than Arms
Undermain Theatre will present the newest work by the Danielle Georgiou Dance Group, Stronger Than Arms, a new adaptation of the classic Greek play Seven Against Thebes by Danielle Georgiou and Justin Locklear.
With Stronger Than Arms, writer/director/choreographer Georgiou and writer 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,” and 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.
Following the live performances of the show (September 16-October 2), the production will be available to stream at any time, October 3-17.
