A sacrifice is required for the ships to set sail: this is the subject matter of Euripides’ tragedy. Konstantinos Mihos’ adaptation brings together dozens of professional and amateur performers, citizens, workers, and students living in Piraeus. Having previously choreographed performances in public spaces, including the refugee housing complex at Alexandras Avenue (2003), the underground detention centre used by German forces during the Axis occupation of Greece (2004), and the Sotiria Hospital (2005), Mihos now casts a light on the Piraeus shipbuilding and vessel maintenance zone. The body in all its various postures and conditions – falling, crushed, mutilated, burning, suffocating, daring, inviting, compassionate, and expectant – is presented through the narratives of people employed at the port and enacted by dancers, actors, and locals. Following an open call, the production will feature students of the Higher Professional Dance School “Alexandros Chatziaras,” members of the amateur dance school “XoroEkfrasi Maria Politi,” students of the Secondary Art School of Gerakas and the Music School of Piraeus, members of theatrical and music groups, and active and retired employees of the shipbuilding sector, alongside their families.
