“The Descendants”, a story about two brothers who never met. A devised musical performance in dramatic composition and interpretation by Iros Bezos and Christos Thanos, at PLYFA from January 11, 2024.
This play is performed in Greek.
Two brothers meet for a once-in-a-lifetime moment, just to fulfill the prescribed debt, which the deeds of their ancestors determined. An eternal story about the unbearable burden that is carried from generation to generation and comes to settle, unshaken, on the backs of the last descendants.
There are no more ideal figures in the world theater to express the consequences of this burden than Electra and Orestes.
The performance consists of texts by Yiannis Ritsos, of ancient tragedies as well as originals, placed in a musical universe.
The music is performed live with the participation of Panagiotis Gikas and Teos Foinidis
