SET DESIGN FOR THE 'MONSTROUS MASTERPIECE'. ATHENS & EPIDAURUS FESTIVAL.
SMALL ANCIENT THEATRE OF EPIDAURUS, 2009.
Produced for Athens & Epidaurus Festival. Αwarded the 'Karolos Koun' prize for Original Greek Play. Based on Yannis Ritsos' surreal autobiographical poem 'The Monstrous Masterpiece' written in 1977. Other works of the internationally renowned, award winning  poet, were also used to compose a retrospective of his life. The small ancient theater presented a perfect setting to the nostalgic ambient of his poetry: ancient marbles, the sea, the olive and orange groves, a small stone-house as backdrop . The stage was filled with cinematography and photography equipment as if a documentary on Ritsos was about to be filmed on the spot. Photographs by: 1 & 2 Michalis Dalanikas, 3 & 8 Nikos Gargerakis, the rest by Nikos Nikolopoulos.
