Meet the artist after the show on 17.08

Belgium Première

The reference to the Titans, the ancestors of the gods of Olympus plunged in an instant into oblivion, sets the tone for the vanity of the ambition of embodying grandiose models, powerful figures who are not subject to the irony of the real.

Between burlesque and bizarre, Euripides Laskaridis portrays an unpredictable and exuberant being, neither man nor woman or transgender, but everything all at once, seconded by a busy partner whose face we never see.
He discusses in a metaphysical jumble, which he masters as much as it escapes him, and joyously mixes genres and registers. The stage becomes a place of invention and freedom, a sort of celestial arena where anything can happen, a theatre of the absurd and of transformation as magnificent as a palace of dreams.
