4 Live Drawing: A Portrait of the Mona Lisa
mon 20:30 (85’)
By Alpha Square, a staged reading of the imagined dialogues between Leonardo da Vinci and Lady Gioconda of the Jules Tasca’s play.
Directed by Andreas Araouzos.
Cast: Christina Marouchou and Andreas Araouzos.
She is childish. She is mature beyond her years. She is feisty. She is docile. She is clever. She is naive. She is a dozen other contradictions. She is the famous Mona Lisa. And her painter, Leonardo, has the obligation to capture the facets of this young woman. A speculation drama about the three years it took the famous Da Vinci to paint his globally known masterwork. She wants to be immortalised by the most famous painter in Europe. He has personal reasons to keep the portrait to himself rather than release it to Francesco Gioconda, who commissioned his wife's portrait. Leonardo and Lisa argue and debate, but they also bare their souls to each other. Artist and subject develop together to acquire a sense of supreme camaraderie.
Tickets: € 10

tue 18:30 (180’)
Filmed live from the Bridge Theatre in London The Book of Dust - La Belle Sauvage, adapted by Bryony Lavery and directed by Nicholas Hytner.

with everything at stake, find themselves at the centre of a terrifying manhunt. In their care is a tiny child called Lyra Belacqua, and in that child lies the fate of the future.
Eighteen years after his ground-breaking production of His Dark Materials at the National Theatre, director Nicholas Hytner returns to Pullman’s parallel universe. Broadcast live from London’s Bridge Theatre.
With English subtitles.

20, 28 A Pop Family Story Ι DIONYSOS THEATRE
wed, thu 20:30 (110’)
Amidst a world of radical changes, Jocasta Papadamou is trapped in her urban flat, living in emotional agitation and naivety, trying to ignore anything that could possibly change her personal, supposed
tranquility. The family gathering at her house turns into an evening of confessions as Jocasta and her guests make a series of personal revelations. A sweet cherry duck, a husband that suddenly becomes alive, a living woman considered dead, an “ex machina” immigrant “butler”, a lover with political aspirations, a cook who wants to be a mother and a piano player who finds consolation in his keys all parade around this dinner.
Through the hilarious dialogues and the staggering rhythm of the performance, the characters reveal themselves, having no real connection with one another, not even caring for each other. A depthless and sad life focusing on glamour, conforms, on meaningless and painless things. A dinner where no one is eating since they are all having their heads in the clouds. What is family after all? What is our duty and relationship with the others? Who are we, really? Where are we located on the contemporary map of the world?
