Athens is at war. Trigeus, a vinedresser from Attica, undertakes the heroic act of bringing Peace to his city. One morning he wakes up with the quixotic, irrepressible desire to climb Olympus to ask the gods for explanations. Like a knight-errant who will not stop until he undoes the wrong, he will do so riding on the back of his giant beetle (an animal highly valued in the mythological universe of Aristophanes).

The fable of this comedy, the irreverent fruit of the union between the theater of Nieva and that of Aristophanes (original author), is an invocation to the goddess Peace, with all the difficulties that this noble will entails…

The Athenian slaves knead excrement that they will use to feed the giant dung beetle that Trigeus will use to fly to a private meeting with the gods. “At this precise point, the performance will begin with the clear voice of SHIT! “, announces Corypheus. When Trigeus arrives at the house of the gods, only Hermes is there; The other gods have gone to a remote refuge in the hope that they will never be disturbed by battle again, but The War lurks, victorious like a hurricane…

They tell Trigeo that Peace is imprisoned, mistreated, cadaverous, in a nearby cave. Corypheus, chorus and anyone who prides themselves on being human on the path to civilization will carry out the rescue to establish pacifism.

In Peace the mixed and the incoherent prevail, the allegory and the symbol, there is utopia and escapism, if you will, from society. Master the fantasy. Spectacle and audience know that they belong to the unreal plane of the theater and the Dionysian festival, to their freedom restricted in space and time…

Let us take care of Peace and, if necessary,

Let’s pretend to be a paradise on earth.

Recommended age: all audiences.
