Case Farmakonisi or
The Right of Water

Taking the drowning of 11 people in January 2014 near Farmakonisi as a starting point, Anestis Azas and his cast and crew have created a production about the attitude of the justice system towards the major issue of refugees and migrants faced with a Europe of closed borders. 

Following the tradition of documentary theatre, backed by many months of research, the play utilises the personal accounts of people associated with the event and lies somewhere between a reconstruction and on-stage testimony.
