On February 14, 2013, the group “EXALEPTRON” attended the performance of the National Theatre “The Red Lanterns” at the Rex Theatre.
The play of Alekos Galanos we knew through his cinematic transfer. Vassilis Georgiadis’ film of the same name was screened at the Cannes Film Festival in 1964 and in the same year it reached the top five of the Oscars, as a nominee for the award for Best Foreign Film.
The National’s performance is not reminiscent of the legendary film.
It is a modern and bold metaphor that has divided the public.
The play is directed by Konstantinos Rigos and adapted by Eri Kyrgia, while Eleni Kokkidou, Konstantina Michael, Panagiotis Bougiouris, etc. appear.
The show left mixed feelings and impressions to the members of EXALEIPTRON. Although there have also been positive attitudes, there have been several negative reactions, as there has been a feeling that the show is simply trying to shock the viewer and is only staying at this level.
