Two men meet on the stage of a theater. One is the operator of the experiment, the other one is offered to become a guinea pig for a fee. Everything seems almost funny, until at some point things are “crooked” ….

It is also noted that the leading role of Panos Zournatzidis in Lebensraum, was decisive in the abolition of a law in 2016 which said that people with disabilities were not allowed to study at the Higher Drama Schools and were even excluded from the entrance examinations.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And seven years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
