Watch SNFCC Reader's Theater live at snfcc.org/karapanou and on SNFCC facebook page (in Greek):
Kassandra and the Wolf was presented with great success for the first time in October 2019, as part of SNFCC Parabases series.
Kassandra and the Wolf is a bizarre and, at times, grim novel that explores childhood and the growing pains of adulthood. Margarita Karapanou’s literary debut takes us into Kassandra’s dark world, where realism is masterfully intertwined with dream, making for a deliciously puzzling read.
Kassandra writes letters to her mother and, through the stories she recounts, we experience her quest for love and closeness in a complex mother-child relationship.
Maria Kehayioglou and Elina Rizou, two acclaimed female actors from two different generations, give voice to the mother and the daughter, constantly exchanging roles in an attempt to put a finger in the wound once again.
Director: Dimitris Karantzas
Performed by: Maria Kehayioglou, Elina Rizou
