Theodoros Terzopoulos with his subversive directions came into conflict with the greek theatrical status quo and he gained a prominent position at the international theatre. Even though the work of Terzopoulos has been thoroughly examined in Greece and abroad, the book of Giorgos Sampatakakis illuminates a different aspect. At the theatre of Terzopoulos the conflict with the current aesthetics evokes the stultification of the "old", "safe" idiom and promotes the end of verisimilitude in the theatre. The book includes a rich, unpublished till now, archival material taken from the director's notes and numerous photos from Attis' performances. The book is addressed to students of drama schools, actors and actresses, directors.

The book is in greek.
