Aikaterini Antonakaki

The French theatre group, Eclats d’etats, well-known from its performances in Greece, presented Eugene Ionesco’s “Anger” for the second time last October under the direction and stage design of Aikaterini Antonakaki, at the Noyon Theatre on the outskirts of Paris.

The play premiered at Ermenonville’s Rousseau Park in July as part of a festival dedicated to Eugene Ionesco. The festival jury selected Aikaterini Antonakaki’s proposal out of fifteen teams for its “uniqueness, the ingenuity of the stage design, and the poetic dimension of the whole”.

The play consists of an innovative montage of three of Ionesco’s writings: Salutations, the Hard-Boiled Egg, and Anger, which are presented for the first time in combination with choreography, music, projections on a big scene in the background, and scenery and object movement.

As explained by the director in the performance programme, “it is a plastic and cinematic research in man; not so much as a criticism of society, but more as a narration, a myth related to the creation of the world. The egg –a central element to the play that is indirectly charged with references to birth and heritage– is the thread that guides the performance’s minimalist fresco. Much like on a blank page, anything can be recorded in this surprising research.”
