MANIPULATION AND OTHER ROMANTIC STORIES

· ITALY ·

The relationship of a couple is revealed within a futuristic-baroque universe.

A psychologist-DJ helps a woman to see how lucky she is that her husband gives her his hand

when they need to dance in front of others. Social pressure and conspiracy theories

are obscured through a rebellion of original text, electronic compositions and polyphonic songs,

glorifying the utility of washing machines or a painting in Uffizi Palace.

The play, which resembles a psychiatric session, a concert, a mystical gathering

or a manual of instructions, comes to life three years after its premiere in Frankfurt.

Written, Directed by Artemis Chrysostomidou
