Day in, day out we are constantly confronting the effect of light, its impression, its allure. In theatre, hours are spent on stabilising the lights, the fade-ins and -outs. Even on the very last minute or after the premier. Light is the cement that sticks actions together. Discretely, poetically, dramatically.
What if the focus tilted from the actors to the fly bars?
This time around, light is at issue as an object in itself. Light becomes the action, the ultimate protagonist. The mechanical innards of the stage are exposed to the naked eye. The narrative of a performance is outlined by the lighting cues. The invisible is made visible.
With the kind contribution of the Experimental Stage -1 of the National Theatre of Greece. Special thanks to Eliza Alexandropoulou, Anestis Azas and Prodromos Tsinikoris.
