As my readers probably know I am an amateur actress apart from teacher. I belong in Dithyramvos ex Amaxis, the Teachers' Association Drama Club of Thessaloniki.
Every year we mount a play for children and do various others performances, book presentations etc.
That needs lots of rehearsals that we do twice a week. And of course our only satisfaction out of this is our joy during acting.
This year two members of the team Afrodite Ioannou and Ioanna Katsarou wrote a play for us. "Koutornithia" is the land of silly hens. They are happily living in a modern egg production plant but they are not aware of what happens to their eggs which vanish every day.
One day a strange bird lands in their place and they want to throw it out as it is different from them. But the bird helps them to realise what they are and the dirty pig explains why their eggs vanish.
It is a funny play with lots of messages about industrialisation and racism. We acted the play twice a day for schools for a week (20th-24th February) and on the 24th we acted a third time in the evening for the public.
The play was directed by our fellow teacher and actress Vana Vourtsaki.
Here are photos from the performances.You can see more photos here.
