by Manos Eleftheriou
Strange Doors is an unpublished text recorded and transcribed by the great poet and lyricist Manos Eleftheriou five years before his death and entrusted in the hands of actress Nena Menti. The text takes back in time, from early 20th-century Syros and onwards through narrations by Eleftheriou’s grandmother, Evangelia Digeni. The harrowing tale explores themes commonly found in Eleftheriou’s work, such as the tough living conditions in the country, social injustice, melancholy, and the fear of death. Music and poems linked with Eleftheriou and his birthplace will punctuate these themes during the performance.
Strange Doors, this deeply intimate work, ultimately conveys the collective unconscious of an entire nation. Manos Karatzogiannis, Thanasis Niarchos and Giorgos Andreou, close collaborators of the late Manos Eleftheriou, respectively take on the duties of director, dramaturg and composer.
