Αισθητή η Μείωση της Σκόνης από Αύριο
(The dust is expected to retreat by tomorrow)

En.act theatre group, 2016

When another massive dust wave hits Cyprus, three people take refuge in a basement until the phenomenon retreats. After three years of isolation, they run out of supplies.

Departing from recordings of everyday life conversations on the island and with limited props, everydayness is staged and subverted to an epic quest for food. The verbatim material reveals a battle between confinement and freedom and describes strategies of escapism within the structures of symbolic domination in Cypriot dialect. The microcosm denies the macrocosm and the question of whether to be part of it or not, faces the obstacle of “how” to be part of it.
