Iokasté

Description

A Czech-Slovakian co-production, written and staged by Slovak director Luk√°Ň° Brutovsk√Ĺ, with a mixed artistic team and cast, spoken in both languages, Iokast√© is focused on this figure from Greek mythology. By giving Jocasta a central role and a voice she never had, the show tells the story of a queen who has always been ‚Äúon the fringes of men, theatre characters and authors‚ÄĚ. Even in Oedipus Rex, Sophocles only concedes her an oblique importance, when her suicide is described by a messenger. Iokast√© opposes a feminist vision, a clash of Antiquity with the present, of myth with #MeToo. Taking advantage of the similitude and difference between the Czech and Slovak languages, combining the poetry of a contemporary text with a strong body movement and visual component, Iokast√© investigates the roots of misogyny, anti-feminism and toxic masculinity, from Sophocles to Donald Trump.
