Dear IETM Members, friends and colleagues,

we would like to invite you to our performance

Sons and daughters; a play on the quest of happiness

on Saturday 19/10, at 18.30 and 21.00, at Bios (84 Pireos st)

(in Greek with English surtitles)



Sons and daughters
a play on the quest of happiness



Five young performers travelled all over Greece (from Athens to Thessaloniki, Crete, Mykonos, Corfu, Amorgos etc) for 13 months, interviewed senior citizens and asked them to remember the single, significant story that changed their life.

Out of 85 different stories, they picked those that were more attached to historical events and enact on stage true episodes that happened during the declaration of War by the Italians, the invasion of Greece by the Germans, the build of the Berlin Wall, the Coup of the Generals, the immigration to Germany, Australia and Canada, the rise of the Social-democratic party of Andreas Papandreou until the Athens Olympic Games in 2004.

The final play is a mosaic of unwritten short stories of the everyday life, which sometimes loses its way, but insists on wanting to be happy in a parallel world under the official, recorded History

The performance premiered at the Athens and Epidaurus Festival in June 2012 with great success and received outstanding reviews from the press. Since then, Sons and Daughters has been performed in continuous sold-out nights in Athens and has been touring both in Greece and Europe.



PRESS QUOTES

-The best performance of this year's Athens and Epidaurus Festival!

A humanist theater in the paths of Mnouchkine with minimal props and actors like multitools.

(Ioanna Mplatsou, Kathimerini tis Kuriakis)



-Sold out! Not a single ticket left for all three show dates of Sons and Daughters in the Greek Festival!

(Elena Galanopoulou, tospirto)



-Una grande lezione di teatro contemporaneo che appaga e commuove! Con una semplicità che sa meravigliare.

A great lesson of contemporary theater that satisfies and moves! With a simplicity that knows how to surprise.

(Omar Manini. Whipart.it, Udine, Italy)



-The actors dramatist with incredible skill and bravery, combining folk music with handmade musicians sounds causing thrill and laugh naturally. Beautiful pictures etched in memory. (Chara Kiousi, cosmo.gr)



-A great journey, a different "liberating" course of human history, where theater is united with real historical events. (Penelope Christopoulou, Artatnet)



-A genuine riposte to widespread despair and blackness that dominates our lives.  A huge "YES" to life.

(Savvas Patsalides Aggelioforos tis Kuriakis)



-Inspired, original and surprisingly healing. Clear and multi-layered at the same time, Sforaris’ new work is one of the best moments of the Greek Festival. (Tatiana Kapodistria, to spirto)


-A performance-experience for the viewers. (Ioanna Kleftogianni, in2life)

                         

-Touching and hilarious at the same time. A new theatrical experience that speaks to our souls in an intense and magical way.

(Tatiana Theodorou, neamatia)



-Human and lucid, extremely inventive, with a rare honesty on stage. A sweet and emotional narration of the Greek History. (Stella Charami, Eleftheros Tipos)



-Feeling happy after seeing a performance is something that rarely happens to me. A performance that should be taught in schools, not as the past but as Greece nowadays. A slap in the face. (Thomas Sideris, artfix)
