Gkiak

Cyprus : Gkiak

The highly successful performance “Gkiak” of the National Theatre of Northern Greece travels to Cyprus for 3 performances.

At a wedding table somewhere in the villages of Locris, the diners unfold their stories, stories of Gkiak. Gkiak, in the language of Arvanites, means blood, consanguinity, vendetta, revenge and race. The protagonists of these stories, Arvanites from the villages of Locris, have fought in Asia Minor and experienced the violence of war. When they return home they are not the same anymore. They will collide with the traditional values of the society they grew up and they will be deeply shocked when they realize that nothing is the same. They will confide their stories and reveal to us moral and psychological dilemmas while, at the same time, they will present their personal ‘document’ about the violent transformation of the modern Greek state.
