Fougaro - Shadows reviving, "Karagiozis comes out of quarantine", September 30th 2020
The company "Proscenium, Culture - Social Entertainment" presents at Fougaro Art Center the theatrical performance "Shadows reviving - Karagiozis comes out of quarantine", directed by Michalis Sdougos, original script by Konstantinos Spiliotis and Roula Saltapidas. This is an idea of the director himself, according to which the shadow theater alternates with the classical theater on stage.
A different "Karagiozis" (the central figure and subject of the famous Greek Shadow Theater) is presented in Fougaro Art Center: through the curtain and the shadows theater's white sheet, actors jump in and out, the heroes come to life and the show begins...
The popular hero Karagiozis is faced with the unprecedented condition of quarantine and the coronavirus pandemic. Pasha promises wealth to anyone who eradicates the virus. So many aspiring saviors arrive, but the solution will come from where no one expects it!
