Exia-from the word Orexia, the Greek word for appetite, is a story about the human hunger for blood, revenge, food, sex and love. Using the texts of Aeschylus’ The Oresteia and Sophocles’ Electra as a jumping off point, this is the untold story of Chrysothemis, the lost daughter in the house of Atreus. Exia uses a contemporary intimacy to explore the heightened, primal emotions central to ancient Greek drama.
