AMOR, DIRECTED BY THEODOROS TERZOPOULOS, IN ATTIS THEATRE
FROM NOVEMBER 25TH, 2015 TO JANUARY 17, 2016
Amor, one of the latest atop performance, highly appreciated by the audience and praised by the critics, will be repeated in Attis Theatre fora limited number of performances, from November 25th. Amor is a scenic composition based on a text written by Thanasis Alevras and directed by Theodoros Terzopoulos.
The scene is a place of an auction, where everything - the roles, the theatre accessories, the emotions, the memories, the parts of human body - is being sampled, cost and purchased. The prices are affected by the fluctuations of the stock market.
The actors humorously observe the contemporary situations, they interpret extreme behaviours of persons manipulating and being manipulated by authority, in an era of crisis. However, everything is undermined by the promise of Amor, which could function as a drive force of humanizing.

"... Theodoros Terzopoulos is creating a kind of theatrical 'poetry' [...] offering the unique, visually impeccable world of Amor".
Louiza Arkoumanea, To Vima (15/12/2013)
"Terzopoulos is offering a proposal for the end of the world and its new beginning through a post-Brechtian distancing and a deeply sarcastic, but also intensely humanitarian approach".
Dimitris Tsatsoulis, Eleftherotypia (20/1/2014)
"In 50 minutes and only with two performers- Antonis Myriagkos in a unique interpretation and luscious Aglaia Pappa- the internationally acclaimed director creates a magnificent performance- visual manifest for the "present" of the crisis" and "forever" of theatre.
Ileiana Dimadi, Athinorama (19/12/2013)
"Theodoros Terzopoulos achieves the absolute with only a few materials, creating a concussive elegy for the lost humanism- or in other words, a hope fo its recovery".
Eleni Petasi, click@life (18/1/2014)
"A performance in dialogue with the contemporary era- and at the same time transceding it. [...] Amor is like a thunder before the lightning".
Stella Charami, tospirto.net (12/12/2013)
"A political comment, contructed impeccably".
Ioanna Kleftogianni, Eleftherotypia (9/12/2013)
