THE PERFORMANCE


A devised/documentary performance under the conceptualisation/direction of Panagiotis Liaropoulos that is realised within the framework of the program ECHO III - For Memory’s Sake. “For Memory’s Sake” discusses arranged marriage, marriage and nuclear family in the Balkans. It brings together actors from Greece, Bulgaria, Romania and Albania on stage to co-create and present a collective multicultural experience based on testimonies, tradition, and the artistic perceptions of young people regarding love, family and duty.

Sketch of the performance


The text of the performance has taken shape on the basis of interviews given by people who have experienced arranged marriage personally, as children of said marriages, matchmakers, or members of a society in which arranged marriage was the norm.



LINGUISTIC AND SENSORY ACCESS

 

The performance is presented in four languages: Greek, Albanian, Romanian and Bulgarian.

 

ATLAS E.P. is responsible for the transfer of all languages in the form of Greek and English surtitles for D/deaf and hard-of-hearing people, and for accessibility purposes in every single performance, while the two performances on February 14th will be accompanied by audio description for people with limited access to the visual channel of communication.

 

Tickets: Viva.gr.

Tickets can also be purchased at the theater Box Office.

 

 

Mpellos Theater is located at 1 Kekropos Street in Plaka.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Following a supervision of the space, ATLAS E.P. does not certify the accessibility of the built environment, since its design and the absence of means to easily access the stage area render the theater inaccessible for people with mobility limitations.
