Abstract

The play concerns the life and work of Georgios Karaiskakis, a pioneer of the Greek Revolution. The peculiarity of the work is that the main character, Karaiskakis, is presented in writing without any mood of beautification and heroisation, but his approach is based on sociological and psychological elements, a result of months of research on his face, which gave the project the opportunity to include scenes that bring to life real events with the originality of the dialogues written in the spoken language of the revolution. The play collaborates with other arts besides acting, which in complete agreement with the direction of Manos Antonios balances between symbolism and realism. From the form of the narrator in the work is created the character “Karaiskakis” who sometimes as “angel” and sometimes as “ devil” combines black and white, light and darkness. The direction analyses the second and third semantic levels of the work, without standing on a superficial form of the hero, but traveling the viewer from 1821 until today through semantic concepts and atmospheric lighting. The music and songs of the show are signed by the internationally renowned accordion musician and soloist Zoi Tiganouria.
