Anna Stavrakopoulou + Olga Spyropoulou | From Theatre to Performance
A conversation with “no power, a little knowledge, a little wisdom, and as much flavor as possible.” (Roland Barthes, Leçon inaugurale).
ANNA | What is theatre, who makes it for whom and where, how has it changed from antiquity to our time and why has it been so resilient as a form of artistic expression? What is performance, where and how did it materialize? Who attends performances and how, what stays with them once they exit the performative space? How do the two genres interact?
OLGA | Theatre is the art of the present. Live bodies perform; narrate. When the representation proves inadequate, the need for a happening is born. The heroes die. The bodies are left bare. They remain on the stage subject to the human gaze. The human is resurrected. This is his body.
