The National Theatre of Northern Greece, within the framework of the 2022 Literary Year of Iakovos Kambanellis, presents the writer’s masterpiece Daddy War.
Based upon historic facts and more specifically on the siege of Rhodes, Iakovos Kambanellis wrote in 1952 the play Daddy War. It is a satire of war, influenced by the strain of the cold- war period, which was accompanied by great expectations. “The hope that the war which was over in Greece a few years earlier was the last one, resembled to a childish ingenuousness. The situation was also then vague and threatening. The allies, as if they were infected by the evil against which they had fought, became its winners and successors” the writer noted.
Union des Théâtres de l'Europe gathered, in the last 3 decades, some of the most important European theatres and artists. Through festivals, exhibitions, exchanges, masterclasses, cooperation projects, the UTE help create a continuous flow between West and East, between generations, between tradition and innovation. Our celebration is inspired by this rich history. With the help of the Interferences International Theatre Festival, we wish to remember some of the best performances presented at past editions of the UTE festival and look forward to new horizons.
