The story of a group of friends from the day they first go to school to the day the sun sets on their lives. Six friends who grow up with different dreams and goals, who fall in love, are disappointed but don’t give up hope, who live through loss and the worst life can throw at them, but triumph—gloriously or not—in the end. Following the ebb and flow of the spoken word, the text speaks of friendship and passion, of difference, of life, loss and the agony of existence and co-existence—all concerns which awaken with a vengeance in adolescence!
The OCC has entrusted Dimitris Karantzas for a second year, an artist of the upcoming generation who stands out thanks to his unique theatrical idiom. In it, he further develops the concept of a restless, searching theatre. “The Waves has been my favourite novel since I was a teenager”, he confesses. “By focusing on the rhythm and musicality of the words and the inherent drama of sound, the production seeks to compose a song out of fragments and forge the universal voice through which people have sought down the ages to comprehend the mystery of life during their fleeting spells in this world”.
