by Loula Anagnostaki
One of the most talented directors of his generation and also a theatre researcher with a Ph.D. on Ibsen and a translator (his adaptation of selected Chekhov stories Entertaining Stories About Mortality was presented for two years in a row, in 2014 and 2015), Moschos returns to Athens Festival with a production of The City. The play is part of Loula Anagnostaki’s eponymous trilogy (The Overnight Stay, The City, The Parade), first presented at the Greek Art Theatre in 1965. The City is a prophetic play about a deeply diseased world. Anagnostaki’s play will be revived in a new stage version, in which live stage action will go hand in hand with filmed sequences. Filming will zoom on the details of the stage action, shedding light to the violence which lays dormant in Anagnostaki’s characters and in every one of us. Yannis Moschos attempts a fusion of film images and dramatic action, working together with a team of established artists.
