Point of Refreshment

Priemere in July 2024 at Athens Epidaurus Festival

Can we reverse our view of the world for a moment? See beyond the world of matter?
Argyro Chioti creates a polyphonic composition for the Festival together with a mixed group of performers, consisting of actors, dancers, and singers. They invite us to discover a special place on the border between myth and reality, inhabited by fantasies and ghosts.

Metaphysical stories and legends inspire a narrative that claims a return to myth. On stage, an existential place of ‘refreshment’ is generated. A place where souls gather to quench their thirst, amidst visions and spirits of nature, questioning the relationship between the individual and the collective.
