The Killing of the Revellers – ODYSSEUS.

Red Rhapsody X  

SATURDAY 30 SEPTEMBER ,
Two theatrical performances 11AM & 7PM 

The Killing of the Revellers by Homer, staged as a one-act, 50 minutes long drama, revolves around one actor playing a range of roles- Homer the narrator, Odysseus, his son Telemachus, Athena the goddess dressed as Mentor and several suitors.

The actor accompanies the ancient Greek spoken language by an improvised phorminx – a string instrument made of wire strings attached with magnets. The result is a primitive acoustic experience. The Killing of the Revellers uses contemporary theatrical and technical means – industrial sounds and percussion and inspired movements – to stage the end of the saga for modern audiences. Homer’s poetry is performed in its original rhythmic form while surtitled in English allows spectators to follow. However, the aim of the show is to confront viewers with a highly physical performance and breathe life into an otherwise dead language.

THE PLOT

Surviving a ten years’ war and an adventurous journey at sea, Odysseus comes home a stranger in rags and finds his palace taken over by strangers. Over a hundred suitors have occupied the grounds and surrounded his wife, while plotting to steal his throne and kill his only son. The hero devises a plan to take back what’s rightfully his, and that’s where The Killing of the Revellers begins. The Slaughter of the Suitors also known as Rhapsody 22 has been described as one of the most brutal, yet most gripping and richly symbolic pieces of world literature.

The final scene of the slaughter is yet another struggle in the Odyssey of struggles. “Reason wins over rage in the slaughter scene. What’s at stake is the quest for individuality and the self,” says actor/director Yiorgos Panteleakis. “The suitors’ names are symbolical. They stand for intrusive thoughts, obsessions, delusions or thinking errors – Antinous (against reason), Agelaus (herd behavior), Amphinomus (contradictory) and so on. Odysseus kills the mind’s chatter on the road to self-awareness.” The Killing of the Revellers aims to take modern audiences on an experimental journey, travel, discovery, possibly unlike anything they’ve heard before.

ABOUT METH’ODOS THEATRICAL RESEARCH GROUP
The work of Meth’odos Group is unique and rare as it performs Ancient Greek Drama in the original language based on the metric laws of Poesies. Complex and musical in its tone, the original dramatic language melts the sound and the meaning in a way that urges the audience to feel rather than think. The acoustic result could be close to how drama was experienced in ancient times, an issue that is still researched by dramatologists and linguists today.  The approach of Meth’odos group is experimental. As such, it does not aim at accurately reconstruct ancient drama. The Group stages ancient dramatic texts as a visual-acoustic and kinesthetic experience for modern 21st century audiences. The theatrical and musical means used draw from percussion, improvised instruments, masks and contemporary and traditional body movement venues.
