The European program World Crisis Theatre includes groups from France, Germany, Greece, Italy and Portugal who are involved in performance arts in order to point out social phenomena and issues of human behavior that result from the ongoing economic crisis in Europe.
The aim of this cooperation is promoting tools for forming a European identity through art. The well-known British playwright David Hare will also appear for the first time in Little Epidaurus with his play, The Power of Yes.
The festival will open on August 23 with the French group presenting The Power of Yes, an investigative theatrical documentary at the heart of the financial crisis.
Admission is free.
