War: a destructive, inhuman and absurd phenomenon that humanity has been repeating through its behavior since the beginning of time. No fewer than 14,400 wars are said to have taken place in the historically documented history of mankind, with more than 3.5 billion human casualties. Based on Euripidesʼ tragedy "The Trojan Women", Greek choreographer Andonis Foniadakis places the theme of war at the center of his new work, which he has created especially for the ballet at the Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz.

His "Troy" is about the price that people have to pay for armed conflicts and the question of how selfish destructiveness inevitably affects individuals - especially those who are marginalized and vulnerable. Using the legendary ancient conflict as a camera lens, Andonis Foniadakis broadens the perspective to contemporary conflicts to explore how we can all work towards a more peaceful and just world.
