About

Returning for the second time to Bios, the show that was much loved by audiences and critics, in many European cities, "Tea Ceremony" comes for 6 performances in Athens.


The monologue, with Marios Ioannou, is translated into English and is a socio-political commentary on the exploitation of the powerful at the expense of the weak and on the supreme price humanity pays to the dark and voracious system it maintains and by which it is fatally seduced.

The show transports its audience to a Japanese room where a traditional tea ceremony takes place. Geisha Kikunohana (Blooming Chrysanthemum) gently and gently creates a silky landscape for the spirit and senses of those present. Everything is harmonious and ideal, but it does not stay there.

Her restless spirit leads her to questions that sound like explosions in the harmonious environment. Who collects our scented tea? Who and under what conditions collect the gold that adorns our teacups? The answers lead to a journey of grim truths, concerning modern slavery, child labor, the trade of bodies and souls of people born in "unfortunate" corners of the earth. The ceremony is structured, but not completely. Those who find themselves in the Japanese room will witness a bright truth that saves and is saved. The idiosyncratic tea ceremony will eventually achieve its own purpose.
