FESTIVAL: The seven-year itch - Love in the times of memoranda

 

What does love mean in crisis-era Greece?  


What impact do economic measures, uncertainty and instability have on the way we fall in love? If love is a way of thinking, what is the thinking that dominates a world in which everyone is struggling to survive?

Four theatre groups present their points of view in the GNT’s Experimental Stage – 1  Festival:


•    The Big Bed (Concept: Manos Vavadakis, Chara-Mata Giannatou, Yiannis Niarros. Directed by: Manos Vavadakis)

•   Lasciatemi morire (Directed and performed by:  Vasso Kamaratou & Kostas Koutsolelos)

•    Lolita Reversed (Concept, text and direction: Christos Karasavvidis)

•    The Sleepers (Conceived, directed and performed by: Youla Boudali)
