Poreia Theatre - Municipal and Regional Theatre of Crete - Aris Biniaris

Prometheus Bound
by Aeschylus


For his sophomore appearance at the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, director Aris Biniaris continues his research on ancient tragedy with a new production of Prometheus Bound. The actors draw on the rhythmical qualities of the poetic text, converting them into stage action through their bodies and voices. Against the backdrop of a pulsating, live soundscape, the performers bring to life the characters of an age-old but invariably timely story.  “A story that can be perceived as bleak commentary on the present or as a bright hope for the future”, in the director’s own words. Yannis Stankoglou portrays the title character, a timeless symbol of resistance to power.

With Greek and English surtitles
