The Planet by AbOvo (Greece)

The first Greek spaceship is launched into space. The crew discovers an uninhabited planet, but soon after the flag-raising celebrations they realise they’re not alone…
A highlt physical and hilariously satirical exploration of society’s strengths and weaknesses.

AbOvo was formed in 2005. The company’s first show Eki, Eki Stin Kolasi (There, There to Hell) was originally poragrammed to play for 10 nights and ended up playing for two and a hald years with almost 13,000 people seeing it. Yannis Sarakatsanis (actor/director) was nominated for a “New Creator” award by the Greek Theatre Critics Guild. Since then, seven more productions followed, establishing AbOvo as a popular and a very active young theatre company.
