20:00 Reflections –Theatre Performance
(Adam House, Basement Theatre) [Free Admission]
Syn Festival 2017 presents two theatrical performances which explore myths, symbols and stereotypes, reflecting on the female frame of mind:
“I Am That Girl” by Edinburgh-based Anahat Theatre, written and directed by Andrea Cabrera Luna.
Clara is on a quest to find the ancient city of Nineveh. As the world around collapses she meets herself at different stages of her life to confront what she chose to forget.
Anahat Theatre combines physical storytelling with an imaginative spirit.

“MAIDen” by Giorgos Nikolaidis, directed and performed by Zoe Xanthopoulou.
Wife, employee, mother, daughter, mistress…
A woman narrates her life balancing between myth and reality while time runs out and life-changing decisions need to be made. Is there a point between biological existence and social stereotype where the heroin can find herself? How can she express -the pure- herself? How responsible is she?
