Kostas Filippoglou, a director who has been very active on the Athenian theatre scene of late, brings together a number of Greek theatre personalities for this production of Philoctetes (409 BC). The director, who in the past acted with the celebrated Τhéâtre de Complicité, assembles a distinguished cast which includes Michael Marmarinos, Konstantinos Markoulakis and Aimilios Cheilakis.
Abandoned on the island of Lemnos by his comrades, Philoctetes comes up against them once again ten years later when they try to trick him out – if they are to conquer Troy, they need the invincible bow Hercules gave him. A tragedy about human pain, abandonment and the association between conscience and politics, honour and duty.
The performance is presented in Greek, with english surtitles
