In a makeshift room, decorated in a haphazard DIY fashion, a performer puts his notably awkwardly shaped body under the magnifying glass. Magic comes from the mundane and references to cabaret, vaudeville and slapstick abound. Greek artist Euripides Laskaridis is concerned with ideas about ridicule and transformation. By testing the limits of our acceptance of the incongruous and the unfamiliar, the performer and the audience alike will experience a moment of transcendence.

“A striking show at the Barbican — unexpectedly affecting!”
LYN GARDNER – THE GUARDIAN
“…an episode of anarchic, physical theatre that will live long in the memory. Euripides Laskaridis is a Greek exponent of the theatre of the absurd, without inhibition and possessing enormous charisma.”
“Your own brain keeps thinking what the fuck? and then: what the hell, just go with it. It’s worth it.”
Euripides Laskaridis (director, performer) studied acting in Athens’ leading Drama School “Karolos Koun” and directing (MFA) in New York’s Brooklyn College on an Onassis Foundation Scholarship. He has been performing since 1995, working with directors like Dimitris Papaioannou and Robert Wilson. He began directing his own work in 2000, both stage works and, later, award-winning short films. In 2009, he founded the OSMOSIS Performing Arts Co and presented works at various Greek theatres. In 2016, Euripides was awarded one of the inaugural Pina Bausch Fellowships to spend few months alongside the director and choreographer Lemi Ponifasio in New Zealand, Chile and Europe. In August 2017, Euripides was listed in the Hoffnungsträger (Promissing Talent) list of the German magazine «tanz» and was also honored to become associated artist of Portugal’s leading residency organization, O Espaço Do Tempo – Associação Cultural.
OSMOSIS Performing Arts Co’s first solo work, RELIC, made it to the Aerowaves 2015 list and opened in Barcelona in 2015. Since then it has appeared at twenty international festivals in the UK, France, Austria, Italy, Finland, Ireland, Israel, Slovenia, Switzerland, and is still touring. Euripides’ new work TITANS is an international co-production between Greece, France, Canada, Holland and Portugal. It premiered in 2017 and has been presented at Festival delle Colline Torinesi, the Grec Festival de Barcelona, Julidans Amsterdam and Théâtre de la Ville – Les Abbesses. In 2018 it will be presented in various international festivals.
