WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The pianist, dancer and actress Tatou Dede and the director and actor Ionas Manolis are joining again their artistic forces in one of the most important modern Greek texts: The Return of Iphigeneia by Yannis Ritsos. They highlight the sensitivity and sharpness of the poetry of Ritsos in a performance that marries poetry, dance and music in a modern approach with sensitivity, humor and acidity. A penetration in multiple aspects of female entity and a search on social and political dimension of existence.
The Return of Iphigenia written in 1972 belongs to the "Fourth Dimension" an evocative work of poet, including poems multiverse in the form of theatrical monologue and have drawn their inspiration from Greek mythology, written from 1956 to 1975.
At a critical time for Greece, Ritsos is more contemporary than ever. Using feedstock ancient Greek tragedy speaks to modern Greece and its people carrying the weight on the essential existential anxieties about truth, about home.
