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.
