Eins Zwei Drei

Museum: a seemingly neutral space, with its own set of rules. What happens when three clowns show up and turn everything upside down? Three virtuoso performers unleash their talents against the backdrop of an impressive setting, a total work of art, a miniature of our society, to the sounds of pianist Colin Vallon. A hilarious spectacle, mirroring the complexity, violence and poetry of contemporary relationships and power struggles. Above all, a clown performance for grown-ups!


Young theatre and dance researchers introduce audiences to the performances

For many of us, a Festival performance is a fascinating, unexplored universe waiting to be discovered. What is the starting point of a performance? What “school” does it fall into? What can be inferred about the process of art making through the style of a particular performance?

Through this new practice, launched in the summer of 2021, the Athens Epidaurus Festival, in cooperation with the Theatre Studies Department of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, as part of the Master’s programme “Greek and World Theatre: Drama, Performance, Education”, invites post-graduate students – theatre researchers and dance experts – to delve into the Peiraios 260 performances and facilitate access to this creative world for audiences. Young researchers and experts will whet festival-goers’ appetites and provide them with theoretical tools in order to give them a better understanding of the performance they are about to enjoy.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, all performance dates are subject to change
