This book is a reproduction of the original script written in 1985 by French playwright and teacher Yves Mercol (1948-2011). Iphigenia or A Girl for the Wind is a rewriting of the Greek play written by Euripides between 408 and 406 BC. Yves Mercol wrote a new version of the story to be performed by his high school students in Saint-Etienne. The reproduction of the script is a way to save the play from being destroyed (as only one hard copy was left) as well as a way to spread it to a new audience

and to continue the pedagogical and artistic work of Yves Mercol. This book is a first step into looking at the oeuvre of the author that includes dozens of plays, short stories and notes. In the summer of 2016, Iphigenia or
a Girl for the Wind will be translated into an exhibition at Stellwerk, Kassel, and will be used as the basis for a workshop held at New Bretagne/Belle Air in Essen.
This publication is also an open invitation to anybody who is interested in using the play for personal or collective projects or simply to curious readers.
