in the title role.

A few words about the project

Michalis Kovanidis gave us a strong thematic theatrical monologue with which he embellishes the bad texts of the Greek in a sophisticated and sometimes humorous way patriarchal society.

The focus is on the Holy Greek Family.

Olga is the woman next door who finds herself in her husband’s arms.

Her daily abuse and the regime of fear and guilt in which she lives make her a helpless being, unable to react.

Gender-specific violence, marriage, motherhood, the status of women and men, abuse and its silence are topics that are addressed extremely aptly.

Especially today, when the barrier of silence is gradually beginning to break.

This project aims to become the voice and defender of every woman who has fought to claim what is taken for granted.

“Olga” was awarded by the literary club “Parnassus” in 2017 and presented by DI.PE.THE. Serres between 2017 and 2019.

Director’s note

Someone called her a woman.

Just one word… three syllables…

A woman buried behind norms and moral lies…

Someone silenced her, but because she was a woman, she changed.

Someone called her Olga, but she never saw anything beyond that.

We call it a second reading in the theater.

In search of what lies behind the obvious.

What do you say; We do it;

It is worth it!
