KOLOKOTRONIS' MEMOIRS, ATHENS' UNIVERSITY MUSEUM, PLAKA, 2021
2021 marks a 200 year anniversary of the first national revolution in Europe, that led to the foundation of the modern Greek state. Theodoros Kolokotronis is probably the most prominent heroic figure of that era. The play is based on his own written memoirs, as dictated by Kolokotronis to Georgios Tertsetis, titled "Narration of events of the Greek race from 1770 to 1836". The radiant hero is here presented in the context of an imaginary, historical museum, as a living "exhibit" that comes to life through research.
