About This Show

Plato’s Apology of Socrates is a work considered to be among the foundations of Western thought, and Topia Arts Center is thinking about solid beginnings as they continue to rebuild their theater space. For this second Fundraising Benefit Performance in the still raw theater space, Topia is presenting a classic with a twist.

Actor Yannis Simonides brings Socrates to life in this one-man show, staged uniquely within the current “voicepaper” sculpture installation of artist Ven Voisey. Simonides and director Loukas Skipitaris have come up with an accessible and engaging modern translation of Plato’s original Greek text. Oscar and Tony Award-winning designer Theoni Vahliotis Aldredge designed Simonides’ costume and mask. Caryn Heilman adds live percussion.
