VCASS The Iliad

Presented by the Victorian College of the Arts Secondary School’s Year 12 Theatre Arts Company 2019,

The Iliad is an original group devised theatre piece adapted from Homer’s War Epic.  

 
The Homeric war poem, The Iliad begins in the final year of the Trojan War, focusing on the ancient bloody battle between the Achaean and Trojan armies. The series of events that provoked the nine-year bloodshed in Troy began with the Prince of Troy, Paris and his fatal decision to chose from the three goddess: Hera, Athena and Aphrodite. His choice of Aphrodite, the goddess of love granted him the prize of the most beautiful woman in the world, Helen of Sparta. Upon her abduction, her Spartan husband, Menelaus, along with his brother-in-arms, Agamemnon rallied the Achaean troops, including heroic Achilles, brave hearted Diomedes, cunning Odysseus, strong armed Ajax and skilled physician and fighter Patroclus.
 
In the Trojan palace, King Priam and Queen Hecuba deal with the repercussions of their son, Paris’ actions. Prince Hector, supreme leader of Troy and brother of Paris leads the Trojan troops towards their fateful conflict with the mighty Achaeans.
 
As the two armies fight for Helen of Troy, experience the honour, betrayal, suffering and tragic reality of humanity’s mortality.
