A slaughterhouse holds all the passions of mankind. A woman, wandering the premises of an abandoned slaughterhouse, reminiscent of her palace, "bleeds out" sins and stereotypes, questioning the story granted to her: When Agamemnon returns from the Trojan War, Clytemnestra avenges their daughter's death by murdering her husband. Their son, Orestes, will commit matricide, to avenge his father's death. Clytemnestra is confronted with these events in a re-telling of the myth, abolishing both the victimization and demonization of the woman. From a dystopian present to an expressionistic past and vice versa, Clytemnestra, in her vigorous, yet lyrical monologue, puts before the audience eternal moral questions: Is self-justice an act of righteousness? Does revenge bring salvation? Can an assassination be forgiven? While the circle of blood of the Atreides family acts as an archetype, "Drained", narrates the timeless struggle of a woman who fights for clear consciousness, existence and redemption against ruthless, vicious time.] See less
