Cyprus : Angeliki

Fly Τheatre present a piece founded on the simple theatrical language of the body, voice and space to tell the story of a girl uprooted.

“Angeliki” is a monologue for three actors who play the life journey of Angeliki Matthaiou with simple means – puppetry, mime and their bodies. The show is based on the true story of the heroine, a refugee from Nees Fokies, Smyrna, as she wrote it herself.

Angeliki Matthaiou was “… a child of Lausanne. The Treaty of Lausanne.” So begins her story in 1922 when she was just 6 years old. With the destruction of Smyrna she and her family are captured by the Turkish gendarmerie (tsantarmades) and begin a forced march deep into Anatolia. After several years and extraordinary hardship she arrives in Athens and finally in Rethymno, Crete.
