Piazza San Mateo

The International premiere of Iocasta by Jannis Kontraphouris, directed by Theodoros Terzopoulos was given last automn in Moscow. After that the performance was presented in Attis Theatre, in Athens and then in Perm, in Russia, within the frameworks of Diaghilev Seasons Festival. After Genoa Iocasta will be presented in more european festivals. Iocasta is interpreted by Sophia Hill, while Theodoros Terzopoulos also participates in the performance.

On August 2007, a while before his early death, Jannis Kontraphouris wrote in the hospital the play Iocasta. λίγο πριν τον πρόωρο θάνατό του, ολοκλήρωσε στο νοσοκομείο την Ιοκάστη. His wish was to be directed by Therodoros Terzopoulos.  Attis Theatre with this performance honours the memory of the significannt Greek writer.

"The play Iocasta by Jannis Kontraphouris belongs to the tadition of many contemporary plays, that go back to the ancient greek myths to deal with heroic figures in a profound an inevitably anti-heroic era. With fragments of words and remains of memories, Iocasta construcs her own final nightmare and disturbs the order of a society based upon monstrous crimes".
