About Electra Untitled

Electra Untitled, is a Physical Theatre adaptation of the myth of Electra as seen in the Greek tragedy Electra by Sophocles. Dance, puppetry and visual storytelling reconstruct her story, which she owns and rewrites through the lens of female empowerment. Electra becomes a modern antihero; tangled in violence that runs for generations of patriarchal suppression. The performers transform the stage to retell the Myth and address Electra’s tragedy to its core through the female gaze, freed from means of attachment and biases of the past. Electra Untitled adds a modern twist to an old narrative and brings forward the role of women who provoke change in times of hostility and dissolution. The performance was part of Resolution Festival at the Place, London 2022. The research process for this project uses the framework of the world-renowned director Theodoros Terzopoulos’ Method with the facilitation of Savvas Stroumpos of Zero Point Theatre in Athens, Greece, and aims to tour in 2022-2023 engaging communities of women from diverse cultures.
