Following a sell-out run and rave reviews at its premiere in Athens, ‘TAO’ by Giorgos Kafetzopoulos, directed by Danai Spilioti, will be staged for just three performances at the Antigone Valakou Theatre. It is a contemporary, unpublished Greek play. A dark, wild comedy with outrageous dialogue and a rhythm that rises with the heartbeat of the audience.
After nine years in prison, Andreas Karamoutsos is planning his retirement. His erratic son dreams of inheriting his father’s nocturnal “kingdom”, and Iosif Moisidis, who “climbed the ladder like a snake” and now “runs” Athens, is not about to give up anything.
Three generations on edge: illegal business, ideologies that cannot be questioned, the microcosm of the night, from prison to the glorious pop/folk club. Familiar situations, our own, Greek, Balkan, bordering on the extravagant and constantly flirting with the absurd. Fragments of ideologies, myths, religions, fantasies. The chaos of the times. And in the midst of it all, the way is sought. The way that makes you a “tough guy” or brings you “enlightenment”. Can people be better? The story of a violent coming of age, set in an ironically allegorical world of the night.
