Following its successful limited run at the Anglican church of St. Paul, the play “Easter Island” returns to the Michael Cacoyannis Foundation to tell Katerina’s story through the spoken word and, mostly, movement.
The narrative core of the play is the protagonist’s personal journey, with its various points corresponding to key events in 20th century Greek history. Audiences follow Katerina from her childhood in a mountainous village, to the experience of war in the city, the junta and the metapolitefsi; from the time of loneliness and introversion, to her broad socialization, and to her creating her own family; from the “normality” dominating her life, to a disease that will change her forever, transforming her life into something completely different and unexpected.
Lonely and vulnerable, the human body, the central theme of “Easter Island,” is taken ill and is transformed, without ever giving in.
“Easter Island” is directed by Lyssandros Spetsieris, who also performs alongside Evgenia Papageorgiou, and Anna Papadaki.
