Efthimis Filippou – Angeliki Papoulia


In a landmark building for Greek history, we attend a lecture where invented etymologies of various Greek words are listed by a lecturer. By means of language and elements from mythology, Efthimis Filippou’s new work explores the relationship between history and History, observing the gap between lies and truth and the thin line that separates the subjective from the objective.

In their new collaboration, the internationally acclaimed and award-winning artists Efthimis Filippou and Angeliki Papoulia co-direct a performance that seeks to highlight the importance of uncertainty, doubt, and ambiguity in relation to language, communication, and national identity.

grape – Greek Agora of Performance is an initiative by the Athens Epidaurus Festival aiming to establish a platform for Greek artists to communicate with the international Theatre and Dance scene, giving them the opportunity to present their works to representatives and artistic directors of international festivals and cultural institutions abroad. For 2024 the platform presents 8 productions during 21 – 25 July.

grape is open to the general public and is part of the main artistic programme of the Athens Epidaurus Festival. The performances included are also scheduled on dates outside the duration of the platform.
