AUDITION FOR A DEMONSTRATION
17 November 1973/ 2015. THE STUDENTS REVOLT.
A Project by LOLA ARIAS (Buenos Aires) in collaboration with Prodromos Tsinikoris (Athens)
Every 17 November, citizens are re-enacting this demonstration in the streets and every year this event has a different meaning. After a year of massive demonstrations, plebiscite, bank crash, the resignation of the president, new elections, new bailout, the explosion of the refugee crisis, we want to know how people in Greece feel about their power today. Are we facing a new dictatorship? Are we free to decide? Which is our role is society?
This performance is an open call for people to perform, talk, and think about today and yesterday. Students from today, students from 73, people who were there supporting the cause, people who stayed at home come together to reconstruct the past and look into the future.
We are looking for men and women 15+, who want to reenact the student’s demonstration of November 1973 on 17 November from 6pm to 12 pm. You can come in whenever you want an leave whenever you feel like it. Acting experience and knowledge of Greek History are not required.
