Man on the Roof combines live theatre and live streaming in an interactive Manifesto that makes Theatre the protagonist, revealing its universal values through its physical, conceptual and spiritual capacities.
Put together by Achim Wieland (director/dramaturge), Marios Ioannou (protagonist/co-dramaturge) and Sakari Laurila (filmmaker) it will be on at Rialto Open Air on Friday, Sept 4, at 20:30.
It will be in Greek and English, with excerpts in Russian, French, German and other languages but the outdoor performance has limited seating.
In a locked-down universe, where live communication is only a faint memory, SRSLYyours & friends invade Rialto Theatre to examine the resilience and fragility of the live arts amidst imposed digital realities.
