Alexander Zeldin

The Confessions


Is it possible to have a fresh outlook on life? Is it possible to reach the core of human dignity by observing a person’s life over time? Having presented his latest work, Une mort dans famille, last February in Paris at Ateliers Berthier (Odéon-Théâtre de l’Europe), director Alexander Zeldin, a rising star of British theatre, makes his Greek debut, staging The Confessions, a narrative about the life of a woman drawn from conversations with his mother.

Born in 1985 to a Russian-Jew father and an Australian mother, Zeldin has worked in several places, including South Korea, Egypt and the Middle East. In 2011-2014, he worked as assistant to Peter Brook and Marie-Hélène Estienne. His trilogy The Inequalities, tackling the dramatic social effects of austerity in Britain, brought him international acclaim.
