Relic
(Euripides Laskaridis - Osmosis Performing Arts Co.)

A makeshift room is decorated in a haphazard D.I.Y. fashion. In this banal yet surreal world a performer puts his awkwardly shaped body under the magnifying glass. Unflinching and uninhibited, it is an impossible body of indeterminate sex. At once entertaining and tragic, he amuses and shocks with elements of cabaret, vaudeville and slapstick.

Euripides Laskaridis, a 2016 Pina Bausch Fellow, is a Greek director, choreographer, shortfilmmaker and performer who grapples with ideas of ridicule and transformation directly related to his country’s recent unrest. Outrageous and uniquely memorable, Relic will test the limits of your acceptance of the unfamiliar and foreign.

Director / Choreographer / Performer / Set Design: Euripides Laskaridis
Assistant Director: Tatiana Bre
A co-production with Athens & Epidaurous Festival.

“Euripides Laskaridis is a Greek exponent of the theatre of the absurd, without inhibition and possessing enormous charisma.” - Graham Watts
