Family Stories review on Kathimerini Newspaper

Family Stories review on Kathimerini Newspaper by Annie Koltsidopoulou.

In this double distancing three of the four actors mimic everyday parents and child of a family capturing all the misfortune of a world in crisis: domestic violence, discrimination of any kind, nationalist, racist, phallocratic prejudices, opportunism, cynical behavior, homeland mongering .

“The work of the Serbian activist, journalist and theatre author Biljana Srbljanovic, titled” Family Stories “, which is premiering on 7 March, in the 2nd Experimental Lyceum of Athens, is written in 1998 and draws from the historical experience of the Division of the former Yugoslavia. Four children in the ruins of a country leveled by war. Their game, anything but innocent and innocuous, is a mirror that reflects a world of suspicion, amoralism, betrayal, hypocrisy and passivity. A world of brute and surreptitious violence, where personal order, prosperity and security should be maintained at any cost “.
