To miss Electra Atreus-Mycenae
video recorded theatrical play, 2006, 60'
  by AGON - Monday, 7 January 2013

In an exploration of the soul, the heroes of the Atreus House ressurect as archetypes, and speak out through the poems of a modern tragic poet, Stavros Vavouris. His poems turn into roles, monologues, dialogues… We urgently appeal to miss Electra, pleading her to understand the human nature in an attempt to prevent, even in the last minute, the despicable murder. There are considerable sumptoms that make her overcome herself and do the things she fears the most. The amassed oppression turns into hate towards the living and affectious mother and finally becomes a killing blade. There is war and desolation inside, as well as outside her. She only loves darkness and the dead: her dead father and her dead self. Her dead father with whom she identifies and in the name of which she will commit murder, remains in her subconscious as a thought and as a horrific image. All that remains there will not fade away.
