SNFCC Reader’s Theater
In the 2019/2020 season, Parabases – SNFCC Reader’s Theater returns to the Lighthouse, staged by a leading Greek theater director of the new generation, Dimitris Karantzas.
Under his direction, Parabases revisit pioneering voices in literature, theater and poetry. Women writers and poets who left their mark through their trailblazing work, iconic female fictional and dramatic characters come alive in the Parabases literary salon.
“As we were leaving, I put my arm out of the window and waved goodbye to my friends, and to the ladies and gentlemen, who also waved to and fro.”
Kassandra and the Wolf, by Margarita Karapanou
Kassandra and the Wolf is a bizarre and, at times, grim novel that explores childhood and the growing pains of adulthood. Published to international acclaim, Margarita Karapanou’s literary debut takes us into Kassandra’s dark world, where realism is masterfully intertwined with dream, making for a deliciously puzzling read.
Kassandra writes letters to her mother and, through the stories she recounts, we experience her quest for love and closeness in a complex mother-child relationship.
Maria Kehayioglou and Elina Rizou, two acclaimed female actors from two different generations, give voice to the mother and the daughter, constantly exchanging roles in an attempt to put a finger in the wound once again.
