Dionysios Solomos: The Woman of Zakynthos

Adaptation – Direction – Set & Lighting Design: Demos Avdeliodis

In his first appearance at the Athens Festival, Demos Avdeliodis turns his hand to one of the most enigmatic texts by Dionysios Solomos. The poet steps out of the light to search through the darkness. Taking on the guise of a monk, he looks Evil straight in the eye without fear. Evil here is not something set apart: it is among us, within us. The poet’s Word, placed front and centre, is brought to life by Olia Lazaridou’s performance, which teases out hidden facets of the work.
