The Thief by Dimitris Maniatis with Paschalis Tsarouchas directed by Stamatis Kraounakis | Every Thursday, at 21:00, unti the 2nd of April 2015

We dont know who he is. The famous bandit Yagoulas? Davelis? One of the terrible Retzou brothers? Thomas Gantaras? The thief with the gladioli? Paleokostas the Uncatchable? A persona which encompasses all of the above and much more or nothing at all, or a lunatic raving about a life which he imagined went something like that? In a place undefined in terms of time, the thief in the performance is not only an unlawful person according to current social norms , but also a contradictory polysemous human being with a peasanty staccato way of speaking, with passions and jealousy, hatred and love. A fiery character who tells his own story, his own version of History, an adversary of public order on whose head a bounty was issued because he dared to define his own set of rules. Paschalis Tsarouxas plays the role of thw Thief in text by Dimitris N. Maniatis and under the direction of Stamatis Kraounakis. Every Thursday, at 21:00 until Thursday 2nd of April 2015 in the hall of Black Box, in MCF.
