REVOLT ATHENΣ by Odc Ensemble/Vyrsodepseio (Greece, 30 min)

Rejecting the flat, washed out image often painted of Greece’s capital, this is an Athens that’s bursting with life. In REVOLT ATHENΣ, the three-piece, politically-minded cast offer insights into post-crisis Greece. In Odc Ensemble’s unique city guide, activist communities are framed in terms of Greece’s wider history; intertwined with figures of Greek mythology, there are tear gas-choked riots against government austerity cutbacks. Combining actors, video footage and music, it’s a multi-faceted window into the living and breathing reality of a place. Odc Ensemble are an international, politically-oriented group, whose work often incorporates non-actors in public spaces.
