ELENIT | Euripides Laskaridis

About

A little before the launch of the work’s fourth touring phase, ELENIT makes a farewell stop at Onassis Stegi. Soon after its presentation in Canada – and a little before setting off on tour around Europe for a fourth year running – the exquisitely funny and oddly magical “ELENIT” is making another stop at Onassis Stegi.


A towering lady with an outlandish hairdo and an even more outlandish nose picks up the phone, sings to herself, and rubs shoulders with other strange beings, speaking to them in a language that’s all her own. This is none other than Euripides Laskaridis, transformatively inhabiting a persona as adorable as she is outrageous, a figure who welcomes us into a universe in which dinosaurs, wind turbines, Stephen Hawking, piled corrugated metal sheets, an elevated DJ platform, Nike of Samothrace – and much more besides – all co-exist.

An utterly idiosyncratic scenic language saturates this exquisitely funny and endlessly charming work by a Greek artist acclaimed both at home and further afield. With a series of works described as “tragic comedies”, Euripides Laskaridis cannot easily be pegged. Active as he is – in startling ways – somewhere between happenings, burlesque, and contemporary dance, he invites us to focus our gaze on the transformative here and now of every scenic moment, defamiliarizing the familiar and making the absurd truly wondrous.

A little before the launch of the work’s fourth touring phase, ELENIT will be making a farewell stop at Onassis Stegi, where it had its world premiere back in 2019.
