The theatre group “Arena” performs The Swallow, a play by the Spanish playwright Guillem Clua, born in 1973 in Catalonia, Spain.
Written in response to the terrorist attack in a gay nightclub in Orlando in 2016, The Swallow is a highly emotional work exploring how loss can both separate and unite people. The Catalan writer takes the event to today’s Spain and tries to identify the motives and devastating consequences of such an attack.
WHEN: 8th and 9th March 21.00
WHERE: Studio OXO NOU, Agias Kiriakis 29
Guillem Clua:‘What makes us human? For Amelia, a deeply wounded mother, what makes us humans is the capacity to feel other’s pain as your own. When an indiscriminate attack happens, we are all victims who have to deal with the same crossroads: hate or love. Our world depends on the direction we decide to take’ (Guillaume Clua)
The music was written specifically for this play by Yannis Katsikandarakis.
