The THEARTES Theatrical Corporate of Konstantinos Kyriakos and Katerina Bilali and the Theatrical Team Buffons of Villa Sotiropoulou sign up for forces, presenting for the primary time in Greece, in one efficiency, 4 comedian solo acts via Miguel de Cervantes.

Via their efficiency entitled “Information from Cervantes” they introduce the good Spanish author as a “playwright” to the Greek theatrical target market and on the identical time make a flashback to the historical past of Comedy.

Premiere Saturday, November 6 on the Metaxourgio Theater.

Those are 4 level diamonds of a comic book persona, with their issues revolving round erotic interest, marital infidelity and their comedian or tragic penalties. Via them, obsessive-compulsive states are mirrored that border on insanity – famously represented via the Cervantes Don Quixote. The tales are illuminated via “funny video games”, starring the without end ridiculous sorts (owls, ruffians, scholars, provocateurs, old-strange, and so forth.), with glaring influences that the commedia dell ‘arte exerted at the theatrical universe of Ther. .

Every of the solo acts items a unique appearing shape and all in combination turn out to be a automobile for a flashback to the Historical past of Comedy. Thus, beginning with the commedia dell ‘arte and finishing with the trendy German comedy, the intermediate phases of the display are Moliere’s classicist comedy and the Greek bourgeois ethical comedy of the second one part of the nineteenth century, translated right into a consonant fifteen.

Directional be aware

Miguel de Cervantes from a tender age was once thinking about the theater, cultivating the style with skilled diligence and obsession. Alternatively, in Greek theater the theatrical corpus is sort of unknown. In need of to pave the best way for the Cervantes dramaturgy, we determined to offer 4 of his comedian solo works, with the purpose of accomplishing the similar reputation that his magnum opus, Don Quixote, has received.

Those outstanding solo works are characterised via absolute freedom, each when it comes to shape and beliefs, and their heroes are illustrations of groundbreaking hilarious-tragic art work, made with mild touches, such as, inverted and imitating components that the inexhaustible circulate of Cervantes’ comedian vein. Those theatrical art work are various with exaggerated, ugly and ridiculous characters, all worthy of Cervantes’ pen, and are lined with idiom sauces, sprinkled with word spices, enriched with accompanying humorous words, which act calming, calming, for the general public. And naturally, they more or less show the influences exerted via the commedia dell ‘arte on Cervantes’ theatrical corpus.

Impressed via this affect, as we processed the textual content of the interpretation, Katerina Bilali and I puzzled how shall we attach the improvised comedy of the commedia with the genius Cervantes comedy. The answer was once given via the usage of a troupe of gyros-comedians to make use of those 4 solo acts as a automobile for a flashback to the Historical past of Comedy, whilst shooting their influences and influences in later drama.
