It takes place in a living room of the times and discusses the consequences of the public criticism of the private life of a couple.

 

Following the presentation, a 30 minute lecture-discussion will take place about the Laban’s systematic analysis of movement as application to the art of acting and it is part of the postdoctoral research of Dr Kiki Selioni at RCSSD.
