Recommended Events February - March 2011

Hello again thanks for reading!
Month of the antiques? Sophokles, Euripides. And some art shows.

OEDIPUS Tyrannos at Theatro Technis. 15 February at 19:30 - 26 February at 22:30. Translated by Don Taylor. £10/£8, Box office 020 7387 6617 info@theatrotechnis.com. This play reveals the potential horrors beneath the surface beauty of life, and of art, illusion and reality. It is also a meta-tragedy, a tragedy about tragedy. The proportional relationships in tragedy differ between ancient and modern writers. Whereas Shakespeare or Pirandello uses the awareness of illusion to explore theatricality, Sophocles uses theatricality to explore the moral, religious and metaphysical issues raised by the sufferings of Oedipus. Directed by George Eugeniou. Cast includes Amos Miskelis, Jackie Skarvellis, Roger Samson, Gencoo Ashizawa, Kel Lagaj, Bernard Lawrence, Robert Allwood, Manos Koutsis, Michael Nghiem, Diana Stuart. Assistant director & language consultant Evi Stamatiou. Matinee on Sunday. Location Theatro Technis, 26 Crowndale Rd, Camden, NW1 1TT, London, United Kingdom.
