Athens, present, today A man’s home; his most personal space is transformed into an urban single life myth hideout for the aspects and parts of his character that reveals ways and escape routes from his everyday life. Following the surrealistic solo of a woman residing at 36 Pythonos St, which was premiered May 2020, a new peephole opens from the apartment across the street. At 11 Krissis St, the audience becomes the observer of another intermediate space, where the personal becomes public, bringing into spotlight the man that stands before the world yet even more before his own self.
