A melodramatic performance
Following its successful appearances at different European stages the best-known Greek theatre group Blitz theatre group is coming to Frascati with Late Night and Galaxy.
Late Night is about Europe, but this is not mentioned. It is about the future, but it is set in the past. It is about hope and despair. Six actors are on stage, dancing in a ruined dance hall as if they were participating in an absurd competition, as if they were running away from something that haunts them. Late Night is a melodramatic performance set to the most exciting and most touching soundtrack of the year.

blitz theatre group was formed in October 2004, in Athens, by Aggeliki Papoulia, Christos Passalis and Giorgos Valais. The group's basic principles are the following: Theatre is a field where people meet each other and exchange ideas in the most essential way, not a field for virtuosity and ready made truths. There is a need for answers to what society asks from art today and what theatrical structures stand for in the dawn of the 21th century. All members are equal throughout conception, writing, direction and dramaturgy process, everything is under doubt, there is nothing to be taken for granted, neither in theatre nor in life.
