THOC ARCHIVE PART 1
“The Suppliants” by Euripides
Directed by: Nikos Charalambous
First performance: 14 July 1978, Makarios III Amphitheatre
The first production of THOC at Epidaurus (1980), in which the ensemble of the Organisation left excellent impressions, paralleling the history of the Argian women with the then very recent Cyprus tragedy of 1974.
“The Clouds” by Aristophanes
Directed by: Varnavas Kyriazis
First performance: 24 June 2009, Makarios III Amphitheatre
The major topic of education and the satire of sophistic teaching inspired the ensemble of THOC to act skilfully between comic and satire, laughter and discretion, creating a very stirring performance.
