Poreia Theatre is keeping its doors open to the audience virtually for this odd season. We know that we will trudge through this stay-at-home order together. You and us together. With theatre and with music. Because this is the only way to withstand.
The pandemic has afflicted culture severely, especially the performing arts. This is a very critical period for those who work in the field of entertainment offering laughter or emotion, amusement or rumination to the audience.
As a cultural entity, we are determined to resist with courage and braveness, so that we shield our art’s vital –for everybody– space and contribute to the artists’ survival. Τhis is why we are proceeding with our 2020-2021 repertoire as scheduled - whether it be without audience, we are streaming it live, real time from our stage!
We are persuaded that our new attempt will find support and that, as always, we will be able to present to the audience a quality and diverse repertoire. In it reruns of older favorites are included, such as Junkermann and Common glory, new productions that did not make their way to the stage last spring, such as This is not Romeo & Juliet, and the revival of one of our most acclaimed performances, Euridice. Additionally, a number of popular performances will be restaged only to be streamed live!
