‘Μεγάλοι Δρόμοι’-‘Long Roads’
This performance is based on ‘Long Roads’, by Lena Kitsopoulou. It’s the story of a woman on the run in the city Athens, trying desperately to find her beloved one. In this performance, only one member of the group takes part, along with a musician and an actress able bodied. The actress is hanged by the ceiling in a way that the audience can see only her feet. From the actress on the wheel chair, you can see only the face and from the musician, only the hands. That way, you can watch a dismembered body on stage, moving, trying to show that the limited movement of a body on a wheel chair doesn’t put limits on the actual expression of the movement.

‘Εσείς, όχι?’-‘Don’t you?’
This performance is based on Max Aub’s book, ‘Exemplar murders’. There are small texts that describe in a black humorous way, murders that were made under extreme circumstances. The show is supposed to be happening in the psychiatric section of a prison, in which all these psychotic criminals, every Saturday night, have a formal dinner, describing their ‘achievements’ under the supervision of their guardians and their doctor. This is the first performance of ‘artimeleia’, former MDA theatrical group.
