Across the Black Sea, on the shore of Tauris, a land prone to violent
sacrifices, two Greeks arrive, finding redemption on their way back to
Plato is said to have burnt all his tragedies once he met Socrates; he
then created a unique model for the conceptual dialogue. What if we
could make the journey in reverse as a ‘second navigation’: from
Plato’s dialogues to the world of tragedy?
Tangled in Plato’s dialogical webs, two performers, Maria Gaitanidi
and Stéphane Poliakov, weave nets and construct traps.
This celebration of ancient dramatic dialogue is based on pioneering
theatre approach developed by Russian Director Anatoli Vassiliev,
and will be followed by an open discussion with the public.
The event is organised by Rawmatterial, with the support of the Hellenic Centre.
