The National Theatre is providing a forum for new Greek writing, presenting the plays of four Greek dramatists at the New Nikos Kourkoulos Stage under the umbrella of its ‘Writer of the month’ initiative. The plays being performed from February to May 2016 (one per month) arise out of a creative preparation process with about 25 days of rehearsal each. Τhe staged result is therefore a production ‘in progress’, whose main aim is to introduce the plays and their authors to the public.
In Titanomachies, Natassa Sideri uses humour and acerbic language to show how human co-existence is dominated by compromise. A family celebration is the trigger that brings to the surface eroded relationships, vested interests and suppressed desires.
