Pinocchio

Adapted from Carlo Collodi’s story by Chris Cooper

From 18.11.2023

- REX THEATRE - STAGE "ELENI PAPADAKI"

A magic box full of surprises and unexpected gifts opens at the Children's Stage of the National Theatre of Greece. Vassilis Mavrogeorgiou directs Carlo Collodi's much-loved tale of Pinocchio in a modern version by Chris Cooper, and takes us on a great adventure where everything changes and everything is possible!

The enchanting story that has been a part of childhood for generations relates the adventures of a wooden puppet, Pinocchio. The Fox and the Cat persuade him to give up school, assuring him that if he follows them a carefree life full of adventure awaits him. But nothing will be as he was promised, and Pinocchio will be forced to go through countless ordeals, resist temptation, change, grow stronger, and properly grow up before he can find his father Geppetto again.

Although written towards the end of the 19th century (1883), the tragicomic adventures of Pinocchio seem more relevant than ever. Living a harsh existence at a time when everything is changing quickly and with decisive inevitability raises a number of questions. “How does a child become part of modern society? How can they follow the adult template? Which parts of their innocence must they lose in order to survive?”, points out the director of the production. With a large cast of talented young actors and the dreamlike music of Nikos Kipourgos, Vassilis Mavrogeorgiou creates a playful staging in order to talk about some extremely serious issues.

In the world of Pinocchio, nothing is as it seems: a log of wood turns into a puppet, a brightly lit amusement park transforms into the dark belly of a dangerous whale, and a mischievous puppet becomes a real human boy. In a world that is constantly changing and ceaselessly mutating, just like Thalia Melissa’s set, the only thing that remains constant is faith in ourselves and the power of friendship... because we all have a blue cricket nearby to protect us and help us to make our dreams come true… even the elusive ones.
