photo by KOUMOU (Apostolos Koumoulis)The director of the play, Angelos Spartalis, is a painter. In the past few years, he has developed an important exhibition activity in Rhodes, Athens and abroad (February 2004: Double Portraits, PnykArt Foundation, Kastella, Piraeus / May 2003: Portraits and Groups, MoTeR2, Centre of Contemporary Art of the Museum of Modern Greek Art, Rhodes / March 2002: Pose for your portrait!, ITB, Art Cities in Europe, Berlin). Parallel to that, he experiments with video art and art performances. In Rhodes, he has presented the theatre trilogy The End of the World (August 2000, April 2002, August 2003) at the Centre of Contemporary Art of the Museum of Modern Greek Art as well as book-stores, bars and public locations of the city of Rhodes.

photo by KOUMOU (Apostolos Koumoulis)Thoughts is an experiment of coexistence between two people: a landlady and her tenant. At the house of the landlady, the poet recites twisted poems and fills up the walls with lines, such as: The molesting of children is not persecuted in countries where this is a National Product / It would be like forbidding the Spanish to cane their olive trees / and the Americans to cane Arabs. Mrs. Eleni walks around the house holding a paint-brush and whitewashes the walls. At the same time, seven different video-episodes are projected on the wall. Those are the thoughts of the poet which unite Andreas Empirikos, contemporary art, the elections, the Paralympic games and the reality shows with an artistic manner. Within the house, everyday life and poetry coexist along with the image and painting
