The National Theatre of Northern Greece, in collaboration with the Regensburg theatre from Germany has organised a playwriting competition, with the aim of promoting contemporary Greek theatre writing and the search for new narratives and different perspectives in contemporary Greek drama. In the framework of the MYTHOS?! project, three winners have been announced, who were selected from the 126 plays submitted to the jury. The first prize was awarded to Natassa Sideri for her play Bound / Gefesselt, which premièred at the Regensburg Theatre on 2 June 2022.
Bound / Gefesselt, directed by Jannis Knorr, will also be presented online as part of the 4th International Forest Festival.
At the same time, a discussion on the implementation and design of the MYTHOS?! project will take place at the Goethe Institute, Thessaloniki entitled "Making MYTHOS?!A European project for contemporary Greek theatre", on Wednesday 13 July, at 21.00.
