STRONGER THAN ARMS
A NEW ADAPTATION OF SEVEN AGAINST THEBES

ABOUT THE SHOW

Stronger Than Arms

By Danielle Georgiou and Justin Locklear


A WORLD PREMIERE (at Undermain Theatre, in person)

-- NOW STREAMING!

In the Fall of 2021, Undermain Theatre will present the newest work by the Danielle Georgiou Dance Group, Stronger Than Arms, a new adaptation of the classic Greek play Seven Against Thebes by Danielle Georgiou and Justin Locklear. 

 

With Stronger Than Arms, writer/director/choreographer Danielle Georgiou and writer Justin Locklear will dive into the spiritual and political burdens placed on the chorus of Theban citizens. As the generational conflicts of territory and birthright ravage the cities around them, the chorus is divided, revealing their individual conflicts and motivations. The title stemming from the line, “Fear is stronger than arms,” the story points to the power of humanity’s worst enemy, unconquerable fear, and reveals that there could be something stronger—the willingness to change. Told through poetic verse, dance, and multi-media, Stronger Than Arms examines the universal themes of myth, status, aggression, and fate.

Streaming Online: October 3 - 17, 2021
