Local Theatre Movement – SKIES

November 8, 2023 - 16:00 EET

Two persons hands making shadow creatures

In a dark room, an internal, psychological and heartbreaking dialogue begins between Martha and her dead mother, Olga. The daughter is haunted, haunted by the past, by everything she and her mother wished to experience and failed to do so because of her father’s oppression. The father, who is not alive either, appears, sporadically (in a video wall), to monologue and suggest all that he is! Soon, it seems, a countdown to death begins, as the daughter contemplates suicide.  An act that will be thwarted as at the last moment she discovers, through the forgotten images that come to her memory, a buried secret about her father. He too is a victim of his own family and his choices, in a role he did not want, but they chose for him.

This is a play entitled ‘SKIES” which is a Greek word and means “Shadows” in English. This is a play that sheds light on the plight of a young girl who, along with her mother, has been the victim of gender violence within their family by her father and husband. At the same time, it also articulates a reflection on the ongoing oppression, a result of the patriarchal family that still exists throughout humanity.

The Theatre Movement will take place in GRAND HOTEL PALACE, in Thessaloniki, on 8th of November, at 16:00 p.m and it will be open for all. The event is organized by CUBE.
