Tonight we improvise

A play by Nobel laureate Luigi Pirandello is once again paired with music by Oscar-winning Manos Hadjidakis, this time given new impetus by director Dimitris Mavrikios and conductor Nikos Kypourgos. The multi-faceted director Dimitris Mavrikios, who has an in-depth knowledge of Pirandello’s works, brings the Sicilian dramatist to the Greek National Theatre.

A theatre company is attempting to adapt Pirandello’s own novella, Leonora, addio!, for the stage. The lack of a script creates ambiguity between the actors, who identify so much with their roles that they dispense with the director in order to live the lives of the characters that they are playing!

The power of the creation over the creator is a dynamic that is essential for art, and especially for Pirandello. The play, which is the third in his ‘theatre in the theatre’ trilogy, investigates his favourite theme of the confusion between the imagination and reality.

Pirandello is not only an extraordinary writer whose works continue to be performed with undiminished success all over the world; he is also a great European intellectual and profound political thinker.

English surtitles: Every Friday, Saturday & Sunday.
