The Notebooks of Anzel Kourtian
May 10, 2019 @ 8:30 pm€20
A difficult and demanding solo performance to portray Anzel Kourtian in a theatrical adaptation of the book entitled “The Notebooks of Anzel Kourtian” written by Anzel Kourtian herself, a survivor of the Armenian genocide (1915) and the Destruction of Smyrna (1922). It’s basically the story of war seen through the eyes of a child. Bursa, Afyonkarahisar, Smyrna, and Mytilene are the stops of Kurtian’s roaming before she settled in the Greek island of Crete and moved later to Kokkinia in Piraeus, where she started her own family and fulfilled her life with her children and grandchildren. the serious atmosphere of the Armenian genocide and also the Destruction of Smyrna, the migration and the survival, the loss of family members, the pain and the disaster, arouse deep emotions and chills in the hearts and souls of the spectators that become part of the events narrated on stage.
