Coming up as a strike in November 2018 on the soil of the lost homeland.
Pavlos Kourtidis’ new production is scheduled to premiere in November 2018 and will be a praise for one of the most controversy aspects of Greek and World history.
«Today I feel ready for the company to take such a step. This is a performance that we had to do. With great respect it is my duty to tell the story as our grandparents lived it and told it to my generation. The attempt to exterminate the Pontian Greeks. The Genocide. » P. Kourtidis
The performance is based on true historical facts seen through the eyes of today’s men. Its goal is to provoke and awaken memories of the recent past. “Genocide” will speak the truth through the bodies of those who lived. It will praise those who were tortured and those who survived.
Contemporary dance recalls the greater and most cruel attempt to exterminate the Greeks of Pontos. 15 dancers and musicians live on the stage of PK Theater will not just dance Genocide… they will honor the dead because they never truly left us.
