FROM NOVEMBER 1st AND FOR A LIMITED NUMBER OF PERFORMANCES
ALARME, one of the atop performances of last years is being presented for third season in Attis Theatre, from November 1st and for a limited number of performances. ALARME has been famously appreciated by the audience and highly praised by the greek and international press.
ALARME directed by Theodoros Terzopoulos is a scenic composition based upon the correspondence between Maria Stewart and Queen Elisabeth A'. An international tour will follow up the performances in Athens, since ALARME has been invited by international festivals.
ALARME based on the correspondence between Maria Stewart and Elisabeth A' deals with the love-hatred relationship between the two Queens that were never real met, in order to comment upon the always current issue of authority.
"The performance deals with the fatal conflict of the two women. Behind this fatal conflict, lies a constant desire for fusion. This fusion attracts but also frightens them, since it means the abolition of their individuality. The two women fight each other and invoke violence, in order to defend themselves against this desire for fusion. The conclusion is that behind the war lies an absolute love that frightens them more than the hatred and the violence. This dynamism, that remains unsaid to the end, drives them to the total destruction". (from the program notes of the performance)
