Directed by Ivo van Hove, come on an heroic journey through ancient history as Internationaal Theater Amsterdam presents seven epic adaptations of Greek tragedies by dramatist Euripides and Aeschylus.

Thursday 05 - Sunday 08 May - 18:30. Sunday matinee - 15:30.

Visionary director Ivo van Hove returns with a dark, epic and visceral story adapted from ancient Greek classics that tell how revenge haunts and wrecks successive generations.

Based on six tragedies by Greek dramatist Euripides and one by Aeschylus, Age of Rage takes the Trojan War and the Atreides family as its starting point. A history of anger and violence is passed on from generation to generation, like a curse. This production combines music, performance and dance from a large ensemble cast to uncover the inevitability and hopelessness of a circle of violence.

Age of Rage follows earlier acclaimed large-scale productions from the world-renowned Internationaal Theater Amsterdam directed by Ivo van Hove including Roman Tragedies and Kings of War. With spectacular set design by Jan Versweyveld, choreography from Wim Vandekeybus and music from the contemporary music collective BL!NDMAN [drums].
