Theatre Company NISIS


The overall process that unfolds and progresses to completion in a performance
Research that starts at the beginning of the year on a subject we chose together
The selection and study of materials (texts – poems – songs) that each member proposes to the group
The process of improvisation, which leads to the creation of the performance
The discovery and expression of personal talents and capabilities of the participants throughout the entire process

Today, the founding of the non-for profit company EOS-art is giving us the opportunity to continue our work in our new space at 5 Platonos St, in the neighbourhood of Metaxourgio.



2013: The Past of the Present… I’ll let you know

A performance as a journey in the most important historical events in Greece during the 20th century, as seen through Greek poetry, live music and witness accounts. Greece during the Balkan wars, Smyrna in the 40s, Civil War, Junta, The National Technical University resistance, and in 2013. What changed and what remained the same?

2012: Brainwashing

A performance based on the texts of Matei Visniec (My Nationality is the Colour of the Wind, translation – artistic direction: Ersa Vasilikioti) and texts of Greek poets and international authors.

2011: I Dream a Dream

An adaptation of William Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream”. The poet himself during his troubled, anxious sleep becomes an accomplice and also participates in a dream, as he is trying to write down the dream’s plot, and to follow heroes, which appear before him unexpectedly. The play focuses on the poet’s meeting with the elf Puck and his trip to the land of shadows where he becomes a spectator of the erotic escapades of the heroes. When he wakes up, he discovers a new poem next to him entitled “Midsummer Night’s Dream”.

2011: To Where?

A performance staged as a game based on the notions of existence, memory and loneliness, created from improvised texts and poems.

2010: Lesson, Lesson, Lesson… / Class, class, class…

The first performance of the Theatre Company Nisis was based (as the title implies) on lessons learned. Inspired by Greek and international texts, as well as by poems and songs, we created a performance, based on the subject: ”The extreme moments of human behaviour”.




Weekly gatherings

We organize sessions of weekly 4h meetings for non-professional actors who are interested in learning about theatre on a steady basis. Through exercising the body and the voice (both key theatre tools), improvisation and the study of theatric texts or other materials (poems, songs, paintings, photography, etc.), participants are eased into an understanding of the parameters of the theatrical act, while they are given the opportunity to discover different ways of expression.

Introductory courses/worshops

Two day workshops (8-10 hours in total), which occur at regular intervals during the year and are aimed at all those who would like to become acquainted with theatre, regardless of experience or age.
Participants are free to attend one or more such workshops and, if they wish, join a group who gathers on a weekly basis.

For Amateurs

Eos-art is a meeting place for people irrespective of age and professional status who have a common desire to discover the full range of the basic tools of acting (thematic research, training, improvisation) and partake in the operating theater.

The objectives of the meetings surrounding theatre are:
the development of the personality of the participants
the development of freedom of expression
the exercise of team operation
the development of criteria, in order to become better spectators

The basis of the philosophy of the Eos-art assumes a clear separation of the amateur from the professional involvement with the theatre. Thus, the creation of a recreational team that mimics professional theater is not part of its objectives. Instead, a thorough understanding of how theater operates allows “art-lovers” to not only understand and respect what they do as part of their personal development, but to also familiarize themselves with the completely different conditions imposed by the professional theater. In this context, the staging of a play is not the purpose of the seminars hosted by Eos-art and, when it occurs, is treated as another meeting, a celebration for the sharing of experiences with the completion of the workshop.

At the same time, the classes held for amateurs provide an opportunity for people to explore their attitudes towards theater after knowing the real facts of this art, and either conclude that their level of engagement covers their needs, or if they so choose, to switch to professional theater by continuing their studies at a drama school. Such questions are easily answered both by choosing to attend our introductory courses, and/or the weekly meetings that Eos-art organizes.
