Greek-Belgian director, writer, actress and performance artist Naomi Velissariou directs a new play called Atropa, about the lead-up and aftermath of the Trojan War.

The piece is based on a text by Tom Lanoye and focuses on the fate of the Greek and Trojan women. Velissariou explores contemporary issues such as identity politics, rape culture and oppression.

Atropa is a co-production by Theater Utrecht, Orkater and Toneelhuis Antwerpen.
