''The Soldier Poet''

Dramatized poetry performance based on Miltos Sachtouris' poems.

At Chelsea Theatre - 11th November 2023

On the occasion of Remembrance Day, “The Soldier Poet” is a multi-media performance inspired by the anti–war verse of the Greek surrealist poet Miltos Sachtouris.
The performance dramatizes 22 selected poems with which Sachtouris reacted to the 2nd World War and the subsequent civil war in Greece and which were written in the radical language of surrealism.
Through 22 projected corresponding images, the audience is taken on a journey of resistance to a truly absurd world which is dominated by death, trauma and the void of life.
The poems are an anti-war scream against the events of a distorted era – they are poetic spells intended to exorcise evil and pain and generate protest to the atrocities of war.


The animated film ‘I LOST THE WAY’, by the director and animator Panagiotis Rappas, will be shown during the performance.

The performance is based on theatrical extracts from Franz Kafka's letter to his father.

It is a testimony of the dramatic conflict between the father and the son. 

A literary masterpiece with talks about the "parental law".

Franz Kafka is fighting to make his own way always under his father "critical shadow"

Sincerely yours

Youkali – The Pursuit of Happiness 


Inspired by Kurt Weill's setting of Roger Fernay's “Youkali”song ;


A journey, in three acts, through our different perceptions of what Happiness is; where it is found; and how we can keep it:

This nostalgic performance includes  specially chosen texts, poems and speeches; haunting songs and atmospheric music  played on

the piano accordion.

People cannot fail to be drawn into this musical journey in search of the Youkali that exists  within each of us.
